Cods play last coffee house of the season

The Coldstream Coffee House holds its last show of the season Saturday, May 19 with feature act Cod Gone Wild.

The Coldstream Coffee House has one more show to present before the summer break.

On Saturday, the coffee house, held at the Coldstream Women’s Institute Hall, welcomes Vernon Maritime Celtic band Cod Gone Wild as its feature act.

Newfoundlander Andrew Mercer (lead singer/guitar) leads the group of talented veteran musicians, which includes Anjuli Otter (fiddle and vocals), Chad “Rhino” Carter (percussion and vocals), and Roy Kawano (bass).

Currently touring the B.C. Interior with their Irish pub nights, the Cods are known for giving a unique, musical view of some of the great Irish/Newfoundland music that inspired Mercer as a child, when he started to perform at just five years of age, said coffee house organizer Rory White.

“His vision from those days in his life, along with the collaborative and creative talents of the team, have become a reality and continue to evolve into a uniquely refreshing and amazing show of great music presented with talent, skill and great energy,” he said.

The coffee house is also open to musicians, spoken word artists, and comedians (clean material only) and those wishing to participate should arrive early to sign up.

A concession of goodies and refreshments by donation will be available. Admission is $4 at the door. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Show is at 7 p.m.

The Coldstream Women’s Institute Hall is located at 9909 Kalamalka Lake Rd.
