We're back from Alaska! Thanks to Heather McCain for filling in on The Edge On Folk last Saturday!

1. Russell deCarle Trio, Monday June 9th, 8pm, Coast Capital Theatre (1532 Johnston St, White Rock)
A night of music and stories from the road hosted by Russell deCarle, the voice of Canada's own Prairie Oyster. Live from the set of Barefoot In The Park, Russell will perform songs from his latest CD - Under The Big Sky - and Prairie Oyster favourites and more. He will perform with his trio featuring Steve Briggs (guitar)and Denis Keldie (accordion) Tickets for the show are only available from the White Rock Players Box Office:

This show is the first in a series of co-presentations at the Coast Capital Playhouse. If you are a Rogue Folk Club member you will receive a special access code to watch the show (which will be recorded LIVE) on your computer at a later date (probably the day after the show.) We had hoped to broadcast it LIVE, but there are some problems with bandwidth, apparently, so it will only be available after the event. By way of compensation we are able to offer two-for-one tickets to Rogue Folk Club members! Just send an email - by Sunday at midnight – to and give us your name. We will look up your membership online and give your name to the theatre box office. If your membership has expired you will need to renew it at the show in order to receive the discount.
