John Welsh Band On the Road in Rossland

John Welsh has been performing his eclectic style of music for audiences around the globe.

With a guitar in one hand and a suitcase in the other, John Welsh has been performing his eclectic style of music for audiences around the globe for the past 10 years. On October 24, he will bring his musical talents to the Rossland Miners Hall as the second performance in the Rossland Council for Arts and Culture Performance Series.

John Welsh draws influences from artists such as Ben Harper, Michael Franti, Sam Roberts, and Joel Plaskett. His songs are often inspired by his travel experiences, blending elements of folk, surf rock, Reggae and Latin.

“We are trying to include performances in our series which will broaden our audience,” says Melissa Ringer of the RCAC Performance Series committee. “We think that John Welsh’s eclectic acoustic stylings will appeal to a younger crowd, while still providing the kind of high quality show that our core audience knows us for.”

The group’s laid back, upbeat, beachy melodies are a perfect way to cure the shoulder season blues; escape the fall weather and feel like you have taken a tropical vacation without having to leave Rossland. “He’s got a natural command of the stage, combined with infectious toe tapping songs that put one in mind of sunny beaches and happy times.” Says Michael Juk, Senior Producer CBC Vancouver, “I think we could all use more music from the John Welsh Band in our lives.”

Come out to the Rossland Miners Hall on October 24 and get some John Welsh Band in your life!


The doors for the concert open at 7:00pm, show starts at 7:30pm. Tickets are $20, available at Out of the Cellar (Rossland) and the Charles Bailey Theatre Box Office (Trail). As always RCAC members get $2 off. More information, memberships and tickets can be found online at If you would like a preview of the John Welsh Band you can find their music online at
