If you’ve been missing live musical performances, Sudbury Performance Group has the solution in the form of the second edition of its Northern Arts Festival.
It will livestream shows from The Coulson nightclub each Saturday evening. The shows started this past Saturday with local country artist Dave McNab, and will continue until late August.
“Last year, we were able to hold our festival right before the pandemic wreaked havoc across the world,” said Sudbury Performance Group president Mark Mannisto, in a press release.
“We held our festival over two weeks in February of 2020, with zero assistance from any level of government. However, the federal, provincial, and municipal governments took note of the success of our festival, and all three have come on board to ensure that SPG continues to support local musicians in 2021.
“We have assembled a roster of artists that are diverse, speak to our community, and embody the enthusiasm that Sudbury Performance Group thrives on. We have an eclectic blend of emerging and established artists in the folk, country, francophone, and rock genres and beyond.”
All performances run from 7-9 p.m. on Sudbury Performance Group’s Facebook page, and are free of charge for audiences.
Sudbury Performance Group’s Northern Arts Festival is made possible through the generous support of the Government of Canada, the Province of Ontario, the Ontario Arts Council, SOCAN, and the City of Greater Sudbury.
