SUMMER IN THE SQUARE 2018
The summer season simply calls for patios and outdoor performances! Our Summer in the Square series features local artists who will regale and entertain you in Norman MacKenzie Square through the warm summer months. Performances will be twice a week, from June 30th to September 4th. So grab a beer at BierCraft or a refreshing iced drink from Blenz and sit out on their patios, or take a seat in Norman MacKenzie Square, and enjoy the amazing performances!
DUE TO THE WEATHER, THE JUNE 30th SUMMER IN THE SQUARE PERFORMANCE HAS BEEN POSTPONED TO SUNDAY, JULY 1 AT 12:00PM DURING THE ANNUAL WESBROOK VILLAGE CANADA DAY RUN & CELEBRATION.
Today's Artist: Jacob Seyer
Acoustic guitarist and composer, Jacob is rising quickly to meet the Vancouver music scene with a passionate advocacy for new music. With a fluid musical aesthetic and an extensive grasp of guitar technique, Jacob's performances of instrumental guitar music are progressive, energetic, and introspective, blending elements of modern percussive guitar, contemporary classical and jazz, and various folk musics. Since graduating in 2017 with a Masters Degree in guitar performance at the University of British Columbia, Jacob has filled his schedule with teaching, volunteering for local and international music non-profits, and producing music with support from around the world. Five years after his first EP release ("A Change in Season, 2013), Jacob's debut full length album, "Migration," (2018) tells a story of overcoming tragedy, movement, and re-integration. Jacob plays on a 2017 Concert Model Acoustic guitar by a local Vancouver luthier, G.R. Bear.
Join Jacob in concert at Norman McKenzie Square on June 30th and August 4th at noon, performing music from his anticipated new album, "Migration."
