Revelstoke is developing a vibrant music scene with a rich mix of long-time favorite performers and fabulous new additions. Many of these performers played to a packed house at the first Revelstoke Coffee House at the United Church on Saturday.
Coffee House organizer Denis Severino announced the creation of the Revelstoke Folk Music Society and said that he plans to hold the Coffee House every fourth Saturday of the month. The coffee house was inspired in part by the Sunnybrae Coffee House and the organizers of that coffee house, Robert Milne and Joan Robertson, came down to perform at this event. With a $3 entrance fee it’s the best music deal in town and attracted people of all ages.
Each Coffee House has a feature performer and other performers sign up to play a maximum of three songs. Saturday’s performance featured the local country music group Sister Girl along with nine other individual or group performances. Here are some photos of the event:
