Celtic Chaos play fundraiser show at Capitol

The Community Arts Council presents Celtic Chaos on Saturday, Nov. 4 at the Capitol Theatre beginning at 7 p.m. Celtic Chaos band members are fun-loving folks that play soulful fiddle, solid cello, sweet accordion, Irish flute, penny whistle, grooving guitar and bass.

Add to that, heartwarming vocals, stories, and poems and you have an original, contemporary take on traditional entertainment from the lands of the Celts and beyond. Tickets are $25 and available at the Rollin Art Centre.


The current art exhibit at the Rollin Art Centre features the Wednesday Painters. This group of talented artists will be showcasing their collection titled, “West Coast Wonders,” until Oct. 6.


A delectable evening of story and song, delivered with charm and grace by the consummate craftsman himself, John McDermott.

McDermott is an international recording star and household name with a stellar musical career – platinum, double-platinum, triple-platinum albums and multiple Juno nominations – in concert.

Whether he is sharing the stage with a topnotch group of musical friends or touring the world as part of the famed Three Irish Tenors, McDermott continues to enchant audiences with his beautiful voice and sensitive renditions. This tour features songs from his latest release, Raised on Songs and Stories, and a variety of favourites from his vast recording catalogue. Tickets are $47.50 and available at the Rollin Art Centre
