This is a wonderful alternative if you are still a bit hestitant to go out to a concert venue such as ours. And the quality is pretty good, we must say. But don't just take our word for it. Norm in Vancouver said "great production, great sound, great visuals". Georgie & Jeremy from Victoria said that it was "by far the highest quality streaming show we've seen". Jim in Vancouver said "I felt I had the best seat in the house." Stay tuned!

The St. James Community Square picked as one of the CBC's '50 Magical Canadian Concert Venues'
Here's an excerpt from the article ...
In 1928, it was the St. James United Church, but since 1993, the St. James Community Square has been a dedicated hub for artists, activists and community groups of all kinds in the Kitsilano neighbourhood on the West Side of Vancouver. It’s a humble building with multipurpose rooms, a daycare centre and a kitchen, but the centrepiece is that former church space: a beautiful wood-paneled hall with arched rafters and soaring ceilings, a stage, a piano, stained glass windows and a small balcony. Dedicated as the Mel Lehan Hall, named after a prominent local community member, the space is regularly home to the Rogue Folk Club which, in non-pandemic times, hosts regular concerts of local and touring folk, roots and Celtic musicians. Rogue Folk has hosted everyone from Loudon Wainwright III to Irish Mythen and Le Vent du Nord to Birds of Chicago at the Mel Lehan Hall. - Andrea Warner. To read the entire piece, please go here.
