Past Events:


The Bills: Friday September 2, 7pm, Sitka Performing Arts Center. Tickets are $20 general, $15 students and seniors.

The Bills are a Canadian acoustic music super-group whose explosive live shows have made them legendary folk/roots entertainers. These five gifted multi-instrumentalists are masters at leaving listeners breathless and revitalized all at once. A band after Sitka’s own heart, The Bills write many of their songs together on an island in a cabin heated by a wood-burning stove and the warmth of each others company as they sit around tables playing acoustic music and singing in harmonies. Now they bring that music to us. So gather round Sitkans and be treated to The Bills’ instrumental virtuosity, lush vocal arrangements, evocative songwriting, and refreshing sounds of strings, bellows, keys, voices, banjo and bows.

Oliver escapes to London and finds acceptance amongst a group of petty thieves and pickpockets led by the elderly Fagin. When Oliver is captured for a theft he did not commit, the benevolent victim, Mr. Brownlow takes him in.
