The band Maria in the Shower returns to the Rossland Miners' Hall on Saturday

The four piece jazzy old time band ‘Maria in the Shower’ returns to Rossland on Saturday, Oct. 13 to boogie down in the Rossland Miners’ Hall.

Maria in the Shower is a uniquely entertaining band at the leading edge of Canada’s new folk sound. Their musical approach is a simple but potent alchemy, marrying traditional folk and jazz with lyrics that explore fundamental human questions, delivering it with pure fun and energy.

Simultaneously humorous and apocalyptic, human and otherworldly, these four young men have the entertaining power of a traveling circus with musical depth to back it up.

This fast-rising quartet has performed more than 300 times since 2009, with over 30 festival appearances including the Kaslo Jazz Fest and the Vancouver Jazz Festival.

Maria in the Shower is hosted by the Rossland Council for Arts and Culture (RCAC) as the first show of their 2012-13 performance series. The RCAC is currently finalizing the rest of their performances for the season for an exciting six-part concert and theatre series.

Tickets are $15 in advance or $18 at the door, $2 off for RCAC members. Advanced tickets are available at Out of the Cellar, Columbia Avenue Rossland or at the Charles Bailey Theatre in Trail.

For more information, please visit the RCAC website at: www.rosslandcac.com or join us on facebook.
