SCENE-On the Edge

This weekend will see the return of the On the Edge concert series at the Red Deer Lake United Church.

Playing Oct. 29 is bluegrass and gospel band John Reischman and the Jaybirds.

Reischman, a master of the mandolin, is joined by his four bandmates, the “Jaybirds”, who together have produced several critically acclaimed albums and earned two Juno nominations.

The band is set to deliver a performance their bio describes as “simultaneously innovative and unadorned, sophisticated and stripped-down, happily old-fashioned and 21st-century contemporary”. 

All patrons are required to present proof of double COVID-19 vaccinations plus government-issued ID at the door. Masks must be worn at all times as per AHS requirements. Food will not be served at the concert but water will be available.

The concert takes place Oct. 29 at 7:30 p.m., with doors opening at 6 p.m.

Tickets cost $25 for adults and $10 for youth ages 13-18.
