Rachelle van Zanten - Album Release

 Git Down Lil’ Dawgy!

Git Down Lil’ Dawgy!

Come for a 19+ night of warm fuzzies with the Brain Porter, and Rachelle van Zanten.

In this CFUR Showcase, Rachelle van Zanten brings her brand new album "It's Christmas In These Parts - 1" to a historic PG venue, the Croft Hotel. In this surviving relic of the wild west, we will gather enthusiasts of holiday hoedowns and good music to celebrate the solstice. With the accompaniment of silent auctions to take a part the evening home and make some swell seasonal gifting opportunities, let's create an evening of celebration and seasonal spirit. This action is supported by CFUR’s mandate and ever-growing ambitions of exposing and encouraging the arts in Northern BC.
