Introducing REVY.Tracks

Arts Revelstoke is pleased to introduce REVY.Tracks, a unique series of concerts featuring world-class musicians at the iconic Revelstoke Railway Museum. We are excited to introduce this series to reimagine local spaces and share unique musical experiences. 

REVY.Tracks will take place annually every spring. With this partnership, Arts Revelstoke and the Revelstoke Railway Museum intend to create a recurring event that community members and tourists alike can look forward to in Revelstoke’s typically quiet shoulder season. 

“This series is another step in the ongoing programme development process for Arts Revelstoke,”  said Arts Revelstoke’s Artistic and Executive Director, Daniel Bhattacharya. “The series is targeted in the shoulder season to create events in a traditionally quiet period. It also creates another performance venue, generating interest and visitors to the iconic Revelstoke Railway Museum.”

“The Revelstoke Railway Museum was built by Revelstokians 30 years ago this year.  This concert is yet another way in which our Museum can be an innovative and valuable resource for our community,” said the Revelstoke Railway Museum’s Executive Director, Jim Cullen. “It’s proof that you can teach an old museum new tricks! Besides, railways have been memorialized in all manner of fine arts since they were first invented.”

The concept of taking performances out of a traditional concert hall environment, and inspiration for REVY.Tracks, came from a venue in Glasgow, Scotland. Glasgow’s Concert Halls’ Old Fruitmarket reimagines a space, creating a unique concert experience where artists can be heard and perform in a more intimate and relaxed setting.

“The venue partnership gives artists a chance to perform and communicate on a more personal level with the audience,” said Daniel Bhattacharya. “The natural acoustics in the museum is a hugely positive addition, and we intend to attract world-class musicians from all genres.”

Both Arts Revelstoke and the Revelstoke Railway Museum are committed to creating a truly inclusive environment for culture and art to flourish within Revelstoke and hope the creation of this concert series will help accomplish this goal.

The debut REVY.Tracks sold-out event features legendary blues artist, Jim Byrnes on April 26, 2023. Jim Byrnes lives and breathes music. For nearly fifty years he’s crooned, drawled, belted, hollered and sweet-talked more songs into a microphone than most people ever get to hear in a single lifetime. His evocative, smoky vocals are found in a truth that doesn’t come overnight. The sheer joy you can hear in the music he creates is a reason to celebrate Jim Byrnes as a living musical treasure.Musician Jim Byrnes playing guitar

Happy spring from Arts Revelstoke!
