We’re bringing live music to downtown Halifax. Join us on the Grand Oasis Stage at Grand Parade for FREE concerts from Aug 5-9th. These performances are subject to capacity and current COVID-19 guidelines will be observed. All Grand Oasis Stage performances will also be live-streamed to our YouTube channel for those who wish to watch from home.

Alan Syliboy & The Thundermakers | 7:00pm Alan Syliboy was born and raised in Truro and lives at Millbrook First Nation. He looks to the indigenous Mi’kmaq petroglyph (rock drawing) tradition for inspiration, and developed his own artistic vocabulary out of those forms. The show consists of songs, spoken word and stories accompanied by multi-media art film and live performance.

Campbell & Johnston’s Black Market Band | 8:00pm Halifax Blues-Rock power group, Christine Campbell & Blake Johnston have been building a name for themselves. Entertaining audiences with their soulful tone, 60’s & 70s rock style guitar riffs & bewitching vocal harmonies. Opening up for some big names, like Burton Cummings, Steve Earle & Bob Segar. 2020 was a challenging year for all musicians, but, there is always darkest before the dawn. On May 20th 2021, they released their new self titled EP, Campbell & Johnston’s Black Market Band. This new record produced by Johnston himself, adds a touch of their old school rock influences with a modern twist on blues and soul.
