The Historic Canton Church will continue our Summer Schedule of Events on July 28 at 5:00pm with the Eliel Family Band. As always are events are free – although we do accept donations!
The Eliel Family Band is a local area band that is an extremely popular at the Canton Church. Tom Eliel will perform on lead guitar and mandolin. His wife Joan performs on upright bass. Their performance will be a mix of bluegrass, gospel and old country favorites.

When the Eliel Family Band plays we never know who will be there to play. It might be just Joan and Tom; they might be joined by their children; they might be joined by one or both of Joan’s brothers, Jim and John (who play in their own band “The Ruby Valley Boys and Barb Wire”). Or the Eliels might show up with other local area musicians.

We do know that whoever shows up to play it will be an EXCELLENT event!

The Historic Canton Church was built in 1875-1876 and is one of the few surviving buildings from the town of Canton which was flooded during the creation of Canyon Ferry Lake. All our events begin at 5:00pm but the Canton Church will be open to visitors from 3:00-5:00pm before events.
