Skye Wallace will be playing live at the Old Town Hall in Richards Landing on Tuesday, Oct. 12. for the first time since the start of COVID-19. Seating is limited, so attendees are encouraged to purchase tickets in advance, a news release issued by the Township of St. Joseph states.

Full text of the news release follows:

Skye Wallace and her band will bring live music back to the Old Town Hall in Richards Landing on Tuesday, Oct. 12. This will be the first in the popular Just Passing Through concert series since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Organizers have worked with Algoma Public Health on capacity limits and will be following provincial COVID precautions. Ticket sales will be limited to 50 and attendees will have to show proof of full vaccination, in addition to wearing masks throughout the concert.

Wallace will be back on St. Joseph Island almost two years since her last appearance, her third time to since she first played the Island’s 2019 Go North Music Festival. She and her band are on their way out west, where they will meet up with Crown Lands to kick-off a 13-date Cross Canada Tour from October to December.

From living on BC’s west coast, to spending time at residencies from Norris Point, Newfoundland to Dawson City, Yukon, Skye Wallace has been inspired by every corner of the country.

The Revue said, “Women are making the best rock music on the planet. The list is lengthy and adding to it is Canadian rocker, Skye Wallace.” Those who have seen her live certainly agreed with that sentiment and won’t want to miss her stop as part of the Just Passing Through concert series at Richards Landing’s beautiful 120-year-old Town Hall.

Richards Landing’s Just Passing Through concert series has been bringing live music to St. Joseph Island, giving touring musicians a place to play and accommodations when travelling through the Algoma-Sault Ste. Marie region. Dozens of bands have been part of the series since 2012, but this will be the first concert since February 2020.

Due to COVID protocols, seating is limited so people are encouraged to purchase tickets for this show in advance. Tickets are available the St. Joseph Township office at 1669 Arthur St. in Richards Landing, or Moose Sweats in downtown Richards Landing. Advance tickets are $15, or (if available) at the door for $20.

For further information, or to arrange for advance ticket delivery to Sault Ste. Marie, call 705-246-2625 ext. 201 or contact organizers through the Township of St. Joseph Events and Activities Facebook page.
