Coffee house perks up for season

The Coldstream Coffee House returns for another season.

It’s that time of year again: kids are back in school, leaves will soon start to turn colour, and much of the great live entertainment enjoyed outside during the summer months will now move indoors.

Back once again this fall is the Coldstream Coffee House.

The public can enjoy live entertainment at the Coldstream Women’s Institute Hall on Kalamalka Road, right across from Coldstream Elementary School, on the third Saturday of every month from fall to spring (some exceptions apply).

“Music, poetry, spoken word or even comedy, this venue hosts a nice warm, family-friendly event,” said Rory White, a local musician who has taken over the reins, along with other musicians, to run this season’s event.

White, who performs with The Porchpickers, runs the successful open mic in Armstrong at The Junction Café. He’s joined by Keith Hustler of Steel Wound and Hustler Guitars, Kerry Parks of Steel Wound, Ellie Young of Backroad, The Porchpickers, Runaway Lane and Sorella, who also runs a successful open mic in Enderby, Keven Huffman of Backroad and The Porchpickers, Rod MacDonald of Steel Wound, Dave Maines, and Dianne Hustler, just to name a few.

“They are the main part of a group of awesome volunteers who will be putting on the shows this year,” said White.

The feature act for the first Coldstream Coffee House Saturday is Steel Wound. Doors to the event open at 6:30 p.m., with the show starting at 7 p.m.

“Participants are invited to get there early to sign-up to perform,” said White.

Admission is $3 and goodies are also available for a nominal cost.
