Joe Hill's new gang of four seek acts and aides
After guiding Rossland’s famous Joe Hill Coffee House for 35 wonderful shows, Michael Gifford is stepping out for a well-earned rest. But Joe Hill lives on!
Joe Hill Coffee House is now being looked after by a team made up of Les Carter, Marti Hall, Kyle Buckley, and Dave Snider. (It took four of us to replace Michael!)
We will not be creating a New Improved Joe Hill. We will simply carry on the great concept and format that Michael created and ran so well.
Joe Hill Coffee House is a place where local performers (music, dance, spoken word, whatever your talent) can have the experience of appearing before an enthusiastic audience. No auditions are required; performers sign up in advance, so they are guaranteed their 15 minutes of fame.
Joe Hill is a real coffee house, with an informal cafe setting, refreshments and goodies, and an evening of varied and interesting entertainment. (Joe Hill attracts performers from all over ther West Kootenays; they love the keen audience and the great venue.)
Joe HIll Coffee House happens in the Rossland Miners’ Hall at 7:00 PM on the third Sunday of each month (except July and August). It’s only $3, kids and students free.
The next Joe Hill coffee House will take place on June 17 at 7:00 PM. We hope you will come!
There are still a few places for performers in the June 17 show, and we are also preparing our Fall line-up. Get in touch, and we will put you on stage.
Joe Hill is run entirely by volunteers. If you would like to be part of the fun of puttting on a show, give us a call.
