Summer Lights Concert Series Takes To The Street July 13th

July 5, 2017


Brandon, MB –Brandon’s Summer Lights Concert Series is packing up from its usual home in Princess Park and heading north to Rosser Avenue for a special downtown block party next week!

In conjunction with the Art Gallery of Southwestern Manitoba’s public art billboard launch at the corner of 7th Street and Rosser Avenue (featured on the north-facing wall of the Brandon Public Library Building), the July 13th Summer Lights Concert performance will take place on Rosser Avenue between 7th Street and 8th Street from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.  This month’s concert performance will feature the country-tinged tunes of Jade Turner and guest Desiree Dorion. Both Turner and Dorion are making their mark on Canadian airwaves this summer, as they are both currently sitting in the Top 5 of NCI FM’s Indigenous Music Countdown.

Admission into this street concert is FREE, with complimentary bannock tacos also being served up by the recently-formed Brandon Bear Clan community group. In the event of inclement weather, the concert performance will take place at Central United Church.

The Summer Lights Concert will then return to its home location at Princess Park for the last of three monthly performances on August 17th, featuring Kacy & Clayton and guest Shotgun Jimmie.
