Joe Hill Coffee House is cancelled again this month for the safety and wellbeing of everyone!

While you are safe in your homes and practicing your instruments and voice, consider participating in Joe Hill once we are back in action!
Joe Hill Coffee House is a great place for performers young and old, polished or learning, to play for the best audience in the Kootenays.  If you have hankering for a chance to practice your chops in a laid-back venue, we would love to have you come and perform.  (No audition; everyone gets their 15 minutes of fame, just sign up.) 

Connect with Les Carter at 250-362-5677, or to sign up. Thanks!

#CanadaPerforms is a $600,000 short-term relief fund that pays Canadian artists for their online performances. It was launched by Facebook Canada and the National Arts Centre to help ease the financial strain for Canadian artists impacted by the closure of performance venues across Canada related to COVID-19, and to lift the spirits of Canadians during the crisis. Artists who are selected will receive $1,000 and their online performance will be announced and listed on the NAC’s Facebook page and website.

The performances start at noon daily. Check the link below for the full daily list and to see where to watch the live streaming!
