Vadim Sergeyich, the Mayor of the town, wants to take away his business, his house and his land, but he doesn’t want to lose everything he has: not only the

5:15 pm 21st Vernon International Film Festival - PRIDE

Pride is inspired by an extraordinary true story. It's the summer of 1984, Margaret Thatcher is in power and the National Union of Mineworkers is on strike, prompting a London-based group of gay and lesbian activists to raise money to support the strikers' families. Initially rebuffed by the Union, the group identifies a tiny mining village in Wales and sets off to make their donation in person. As the strike drags on, the two groups discover that standing together makes for the strongest union of all.

7:30 pm The Irish Rovers @ Performing Arts Centre

The Irish Rovers 50th Anniversary Tour Irish music icons, The Irish Rovers celebrate 50 Years of Music with a tour and CD Release of "The Irish Rovers, 50 Years" triple CD set which will be available at concerts. The band was founded in Canada in Toronto but first became known on American television in the 60s. As guests on The Tonight Show, The Smothers Brothers Show, Mike Douglas Show, The Virginian, The Dating Game (George Millar actually won the date), they gained experience before hosting their first of three television series "The Irish Rovers Show" in the 70's. At that time, fans enjoyed their early hits like Black Velvet Band, The Unicorn, Whisky on a Sunday and Wasn't That A Party.
Now With a career spanning 50 years they're slowing down the touring - ironically at a time when they're getting some of the best reviews of their career:
"Sold out in Tallahassee - All the years of touring and playing haven't eroded the band's ferocious chops. Those musicians are so tight. They're virtuosos!" Tallahassee Democrat
"Sold out in Orange County - When the band was jamming through traditional Irish sets you could close your eyes and imagine yourself at a ceili in a pub on the shamrock shore with a pint and a rocking-tight house band of the lads." Orange County Register
"Sold out in San Luis - Impossible to sit still as they play song after merry song off the pages of Ireland's historic songbook. What an unforgettable experience! The Irish Rovers excite even the most discerning audience member into having a rip-roaring good time." Foundation for the Performing Arts
At the concert, fans will enjoy a mix of their hits, rollicking Jigs and Reels, plus hilarious stories from their years on the road.

7:30 pm Joe Trio @ Performing Arts Centre

These classically-trained musicians fit perfectly into NOCCA'S Kaleidoscope theme. They won't to be neatly categorized! Instead, JOE TRIO strives for diversity, versatility, more than a little humour and unpredictability.
Their repertoire consists of the classics - from Papa Haydn to Uncle Shostakovich - new works by contemporary composers, and their own arrangements of popular, jazz and rock tunes. More than virtuosi, the Trio's members are fantastic performers who engage the audience in a way few classical musicians can. Witty, charming, and tremendously musical, Joe Trio leaves audiences with a new appreciation for classical music.

8:00 pm Poppa Dawg @ Vernon Jazz Club

Sharing the stage as a side man with such artists as Sonny Rhodes, Kenny ‘Blues Boss’ Wayne and Harpdog Brown and as an opener for many years for John Mayall, Colin James, Jeff Healey, Powder Blues and so many others has been Poppa Dawg’s classroom and the education has not been lost on him as he presents the blues with a unique, tongue-in-cheek view and a deep and respectful appreciation of the music. Having garnered critical acclaim with 4 Cds both as himself and with his former band Dogskin Suit, the music runs all the way from Memphis to Motown. The most recent CD ‘What You Got’ features Canada’s own JW Jones on guitar on the track ‘Dub Step’ with Dawg and Dub doing a call and answer at the end that speaks the blues!
