Stettler Variety Showcase announces upcoming season announced

The Stettler Variety Showcase will conclude its 2014-2015 season with two performances by Jimmy Rankin on Sunday, April 26.

The schedule of acts for the 2015-2016 Stettler Variety Showcase season has already been announced with the reduction in the number of shows from six to five as a result of a reduction in provincial arts grants.

The season will begin with the dinner concert on Nov. 7, 2015, at the Stettler Community Hall, featuring Steve Pineo’s Elvis Show, a Calgary-based tribute to the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll that includes a full band. Only 375 tickets will be available.

The Sunday concert series shows, each of which will be presented at 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m. on the performance date, are as follows:

• Jan. 17, 2016: The Wardens — Music alongside slides from three men who spent their careers in national parks.

• Feb. 21, 2016: Lisa Cuthill (opening artist) — A musician with roots in Stettler and a varied musical reach.

Christine Tassan et Les Imposteures (featured artist) — A female quartet exploring jazz themes.

• March 20, 2016: Chase Padgett/Six Guitars — A blend of music and comedy.

• April 10, 2016: David Myles and band — Winner of several awards with best-selling rap single in Canada.
