Live Performances Return to the Shadbolt Centre for the Arts

World-class artists and performers will take to the stage as part of Live (Streaming) at the ‘Bolt, a 10-week online concert series at the Shadbolt Centre for the Arts which will also feature a limited live audience.

The season kicks off October 1 with a free streaming event featuring the incomparable Alpha Yaya Diallo, who will bring live music back to the Studio Theatre at the Shadbolt.

Diallo is known for his dexterous acoustic and electric guitar playing, as well as his skills on a variety of percussion instruments and his supple and beautifully modulated voice. His exciting live shows and unparalleled musicianship has earned him a reputation as one of the hottest acts on the current world music scene.

New performers and artists will be featured every Thursday from October 1 to December 3, including Kasandra Flamenco, Dawn Pemberton, Monica Lee Band, Khari Wendell McClelland, Carmanah, Petunia and the Vipers, Mazacote and more.

As an added bonus, online audiences will also be able to enjoy new contemporary dance artists every week as part of their streaming ticket for each performance. Kicking it off is Drone Dances In Deer Lake Park taking the audience on a 360-degree bird’s eye view of beautiful Deer Lake as the camera intimately shares the undeniable artistry of dancers Kasandra La China, Jeanette Kotowich and Jennifer Aoki in natural settings throughout the park.

All performances begin at 8pm, with the pre-show performance starting at 7:30. Limited seating is available in the Studio Theatre for each performance, in accordance with provincial health guidelines. Live tickets are $20, and online streaming tickets for all shows after October 1 are $10. All tickets on sale now.
