Tonight Tim Isberg performs his Americana-roots blend at the Bourbon Room.

Tonight singer-songwriter-entertainer Tim Isberg returns to the Bourbon Room with an acoustic showcase.

The Sherwood Park-based artist, who served in the Canadian army through a two-decade career, was shipped overseas to several hotspots across the world including Rwanda, Afghanistan and Israel.

Isberg has witnessed more than most in several lifetimes, and his well-crafted Americana-roots songs, many based on overseas experiences, appeal to many listeners.

Showtime is 9 p.m. Bourbon Room is at 205 Carnegie Dr.

The Edmonton Eskimos are looking for fans to fill in as extras during the filming of a commercial on Thursday, March 30 at Commonwealth Stadium.

Now celebrating its 65th year on the Edmonton music scene and the 35th season with conductor Dr. Leonard Ratzlaff, the Richard Eaton Singers present Franz Joseph Haydn’s The Creation.

The composer’s most famous masterpiece is a joyful, theological account of God’s creation of the universe. A devout Catholic, Haydn tempered the piece to match his personal faith’s beliefs, one that tended towards the cheerful and reconciled.

At its opening in 1798, it was an immediate hit and continues to be so.

In addition to the 150-person mixed choir, the concert features soprano Lesley Ann Bradley, tenor John Tessier, and baritone Alexander Hajek.

Haydn’s Creation takes place at the Winspear Centre on Friday, March 31 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets are $35 to $45. Visit winspearcentre.com
