Last night local musicians brought down the house at the United Church

The Revelstoke Folk Music Society held its first coffee house of the new year last weekend. The always-popular event gives local musicians the chance to showcase some of their talent in a warm and inclusive environment.

The coffeehouse was headlined by Toronto native Jack Marks.

Marks was accompanied by a local string band who played for an audience of about a hundred at the United Church.

Among numerous highlights were local band Sagebrush n’ Cedar, Jon Moore’s solo piano set, a beatbox set, and Ian Ward covering Leonard Cohen.
