    Even though Phyllis lived many places in the world as she was called,
    she considered New Denver/Silverton as a home of Heart.
    She was a major contributor to the Kohan gardens.
    We are looking for some billets for friends coming from afar.
    For information or offerings please contact Holly Biggar (250) 352-9365.

    Frank Rackow and the Black Sea bring klezmer to the Slocan Valley! 

    Calgary-based band Frank Rackow and the Black Sea will bring their unique brand of klezmer (Eastern European Jewish party music) to Silverton this month. The music is both joyous and exotic. The lively melodies are great for dancing and the plaintive songs (in Yiddish and English) will touch the heart. To a mix of traditional tunes and original compositions, the band adds influences of folk, swing, funk and Balkan beats and is centred around the award-winning vocals of (former JUNO nominee) Allan Merovitz. Come enjoy a great night for the whole family!

     Where: Silverton Gallery   When: Friday, July 19   7:30 pm
    Admission:  $20 per person, 12 and under free, $30 per family

    Supported and sponsored by Slocan Lake Arts Council and the BC Arts Council.
