The Rossland Council for Arts and Culture Performance Series presents

Raine Hamilton String Trio Accompanied by an ASL Interpreter
Saturday, April 12th, 2025
Rossland Miners Hall

Resonant, acoustic chamber folk with an otherworldly edge, and a lyric presence that cuts deep. Prism-clear vocals + strings: Anchored in the ancient mountains, reaching up beyond the earthly.

Raine is part prairie songstress, part storyweaver; Each song has a story, delivered between songs with humour and grace. Raine invites deep love of the violin into the singer-songwriter genre, writing for violin and voice, as well as for guitar and voice. Joined by cello and upright bass, expect string arrangements that push and pull, that move as they console.

A classical violinist and musicologist by training, Raine and their string trio offer string-quartet-like arrangements of Raine’s original songs. They call this chamber-folk, a hybrid of the classical tradition of string quartet chamber music, with the singer songwriter folk that comes so naturally to Raine.

Raine’s latest work, the full-length album Brave Land (2021-22), is a concept album about mountains, and the courage, wisdom, and otherworldly connection they represent. Here, as in Raine’s 2018 album Night Sky, her songs are set to intricate and seasoned arrangements for guitar, violin, cello, and double bass.

Once again Raine has worked with string trio collaborators Quintin Bart on double bass, Natanielle Felicitas on cello, and Lloyd Peterson as producer/engineer.

“Raine Hamilton is an artist to keep your eye on. Her trajectory up into skilled artist and humorous raconteur has been swift and awe inspiring. Raine’s professionalism – combined with a purity of voice and solid playing – makes her a good bet for any show.” 
– Heather Bishop, Artist, Order of Canada

“There is something about Raine Hamilton that makes you believe in better things.  Her melodies and crisp vocals combined with honest and compelling prose make her one of the most loved artists on any stage.”
– Angela Drainville, Producer/AD, Atlin Arts & Music Festival

The RCAC 2024/25 Performance Series Includes:
88 Strings- Saturday, October 19th, 2024
88 Strings is a Canadian quartet that mixes traditional Chinese, Persian and Western plucked instruments, presenting new musical inventions and adventures written or arranged specifically for the group. Described by an audience member as “plucked string heaven,” 88 Strings’ unique sound blends classical and world music together into enveloping and often hypnotic music. The ensemble was formed as an initiative of the Vancouver Intercultural Orchestra (VICO) in 2020.

Newberry and Verch- Sunday, November 10th, 2024
Joe Newberry and April Verch showcase tunes, ballads, step dancing, and original songs by way of Canada and the Ozarks. With beautiful harmony singing, breathtaking instrumentals, and exquisite dancing, these two singular musicians hit the stage in perfect rhythm, making audiences remember why this music existed in the first place.

Royce Rich Accompanied by Joseph Stacy- Saturday, December 14th, 2024
Listed as one of CBC Music’s “Top 30 Under 30 Hot Musicians,” Royce Rich is establishing himself as one of Canada’s up-and-coming concert artists. Rich says “the program that the community of Trail and the supporters of the Rossland Arts Council can expect is a classical recital program that will encompass excitement, thrill and sheer virtuosity featuring show pieces and encore pieces that reflect what the violin is fully capable of demonstrating at the highest level.” Rich and Stacy will combine forces to bring us an unforgettable night of classical mastery. 

The Pairs- Sunday, March 23rd, 2025
Powered by soaring sister harmonies, this quirky trio’s unbottled chemistry quickly connects them to their audience. Renée Coughlin, Noelle Frances Coughlin, and Hillary Watson are the three distinct lead singers/songwriters of The Pairs. Together they offer a unique blend of music with stories of life’s hope, hilarity, and hardship. These classically trained vocalists blur the line between the stage and the crowd as if we’ve pulled up a seat around their family’s lively kitchen table.
