A Celebration of Robert Burns January 25th

Robert Burns is perhaps the most honored of Scotland’s sons. Through his life, his songs, and his poems, “Rabbie” Burns captured the heart and soul of Scotland as has no other, kindling in his countrymen a fierce pride in their own culture and independence that endures to this day. Grand Junction’s own Celtic band, Fifth Reel and friends will share many of Burns’ most treasured songs and poems, and will play the hornpipes, jigs, strathspeys and reels that define Scottish Traditional Music. Fifth Reel is: Connie Smith, Norm Ashley, Mick Wilson, and Ron Young. They will be joined by special guests: President of Clan Cameron Robert Cameron, Highland dancers Sarah Reed and Kim Kelleher, and piper Shawn Stewart. Together they will create a multi-dimensional presentation truly honoring the star of this show, Robert Burns, and Scotland’s traditional music. Join us for Poetry, Songs and some Traditional Scottish fare. Tickets are $15 dollars in advance and $20 at the door.  Event starts at 7:30p doors open at 7.

KAFM Classic film-Guess Who’s Coming to Dinner? February 5th

This 1967 Classic that breezily presents the question of Interracial marriage and resoundingly supports it because love "knows no race" was a huge hit in the late 60's. It holds up well today considering racial tensions have improved since it's release, it is important to reflect that it wasn't that long ago that interracial marriage was illegal in many states. When Joanna Drayton (Katharine Houghton), a free-thinking white woman, and black doctor John Prentice (Sidney Poitier) become engaged, they travel to San Francisco to meet her parents. Matt Drayton (Spencer Tracy) and his wife Christina (Katharine Hepburn) are wealthy liberals who must confront the latent racism the coming marriage arouses. Also attending the Draytons' dinner are Prentice's parents (Roy E. Glenn Sr., Beah Richards), who vehemently disapprove of the relationship. Join us and see the last film that Katherine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy made together. Directed by Stanley Kramer Tickets are $5 and Doors open at 6:30p.
