I am very excited to announce another new programming initiative at the E. A. Rawlinson Centre called “Spotlight on Local Talent’.
This series will bring to our stage, performers from Prince Albert and area who are performing at a very high level and have repertoire that would be suitable for a 90-minute show at the E. A. Rawlinson Centre. We want to put those artists in front of the community.
In the winter/spring of 2014, we have booked two acts to launch this new initiative. On Friday, Feb. 21, Constant Reminder will perform at the Olive and John Diefenbaker Theatre Stage. Constant Reminder is a family band.
They were all born in Melfort and are members of the James Smith Indian Reserve. Music was always in their household and from an early age they were listening to a wide variety of music from classical to blues to country and rock and roll. The boys range in age from 12 to 19 and perform like seasoned veterans. They perform a wide variety of music at venues across the province.
Constant Reminder is thrilling to watch and exude a passion for the music that they perform. The sponsor for the inaugural act in our ‘Spotlight on Local Talent’ Series is Kleen Bee.

All Mighty Voice will perform in this series on Thursday, May 29. This concert is sponsored by SHAW. This band is making quite a name for itself across the province.
Their four-part harmonies along with instrumental music including upright bass, percussion piano/organ, electric and acoustic guitars and harmonica present a rugged blend of roots, folk and soul. The band formed in the fall of 2011 and their star has been rising ever since.
After releasing their debut EP they were featured on the main stage at the Ness Creek Music Festival and many other shows throughout that summer.
These five singer/songwriters will be releasing a full-length album in 2014 and will introduce some of the new songs at this concert. All Mighty Voice and Friends perform on May 29.
Tickets for these two concerts are on sale now. Ticket price is an affordable $20 Total price per ticket for adults and $12.63 for youth.

See you in the theatre.
