The Rossland Council for Arts and Culture Performance Series presents

The Pairs
Sunday, March 23rd, 2025
Rossland Miners Hall 

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. 

This award-winning group has been touring internationally in Canada, the USA, and Europe since 2022 and released their third studio album titled, “When Will We Find Our Way?” in October 2023.

The Pairs: “For us, singing our songs can feel like shaking off the parts of ourselves we no longer wish to carry – the shame, the avoidance, the self-ridicule – and while choosing a path different from where we’ve been before is uncertain and precarious at times, it feels empowering to publicly share who it is we wish to become. 

We hope that our music and live shows can engage people in optimistic and meaningful conversations about making real change within ourselves. By trusting that there is more than one way to live our lives, we can better show up for the demands of the world around us and better support our communities. It’s about rethinking our purpose as humans and cultivating a more vibrant and expansive way of being together on and with this planet we all call home.”

“The Pairs became a festival favourite after their very first song. Their infectious energy, joy, and talent had the entire audience enraptured immediately and they have become the band most requested to return ever since. Book them while you still can! I hope I can!”
– Miranda Mulholland, Artistic Director of Muskoka Music Festival and Dockside Festival, Vice-Chair of the Board of Governors, Massey/Roy Thomson Halls, Chair of the Music Canada Advisory Council.

“Something happens every time I’ve been lucky enough to see The Pairs perform. A change comes over us all – a change you can see, and feel: Smiles spread across faces; eyes widen; ears perk up; and bodies swoon. Every time. Even among hardened, grumpy music-industry “professionals” (this testimonial-writer included!). It’s the music, but it’s also the energy, excitement, and genuine humanity that they radiate.”
– Jon Campbell, Head of Programming Operations at Small World Music, Toronto, ON


Two 45-minute acts with 20-minute intermission

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. 

Raine Hamilton String Trio w/ ASL Interpreter- Saturday, April 12th, 2025
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. Prism-clear vocals + strings, reaching out beyond the earthly.
