Bill and Kate Isles holiday concert rescheduled for Wednesday at the Encore

The Encore Performing Arts Center and Gallery has rescheduled acoustic singer/songwriter duo Bill and Kate Isles for a holiday performance at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, after weekend shows were cancelled due to poor weather conditions.

"We are very excited to have them back in Cloquet," said Encore General Manager Joel Soukkala. "They have performed in our space a number of times and their music is sure to touch your heart and get you in the holiday spirit."

The duo, based in Duluth, uses a wide variety of musical styles, and their performances carry audiences through a broad landscape of experiences from metaphorical worlds to small town family stories to zany comedy.

This performance will be filled with many of their familiar songs as well as some holiday favorites, and a good old-fashioned Christmas sing-a-long.

"If you were not able to see the County Seat Theater Company production of 'Christmas Belles' due to sellout crowds, this musical performance by Bill and Kate is a great way to start your holiday season," said Soukkala.

The concert is now scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 19. Tickets can be reserved by calling the box office at 218-878-0071 or going online at Ticket prices are $15 in advance or $18 at the door.

The Encore Performing Arts Center is located at 2035 Highway 33 South (on Frontage Road) in Cloquet.
