The Swift Current Arts Council's 2017-18 concert series concluded on May 10 with a heartwarming performance of the play Miss Caledonia by award-winning actor and writer Melody A. Johnson.

Musical accompaniment for her performance was provided by Alison Porter on fiddle. The Swift Current Arts Council has released details about the line-up of performers for the 2018-19 concert series.
