There’s a double shot of live music on City Square Plaza on Thursday, Aug. 27 as part of the Regina Downtown Concert Series. This is the final installment for summer of 2015, and if you were at the Regina Folk Festival earlier this month, both artists should be familiar to you as they played teaser sets on the Main Stage on Friday night and also participated in the free daytime concerts and workshops on Saturday and Sunday.
First up on Thursday is young Regina folk/country artist Colter Wall. He’ll be playing the plaza from noon to 1 p.m. Later in the day, as part of the final Market Under the Stars of 2015, Danny Olliver will be performing from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. Olliver started out as a fingerstyle acoustic guitarist, and later evolved into a singer-songwriter.
To give you a taste, here’s video from May of Colter Wall performing “Sleeping On the Blacktop” as part of Creative City Centre’s Empty Room concert series
A MESSAGE TO OUR READERS The coronavirus pandemic is a moment of reckoning for our community. We’re all hurting. It’s no different at Prairie Dog, where COVID-19 has wiped out advertisements for events, businesses and restaurants as Regina and Saskatchewan hunker down in quarantine. As an ad-supported newspaper already struggling in a destabilized media landscape, this is devastating. We’re hoping you, our loyal readers, can help fill in the gap so Prairie Dog can not only continue to exist but even expand our coverage — both in print and online. Please consider donating, either one-time or, even better, on a monthly basis.
We believe Prairie Dog‘s unique voice is needed, now more than ever. For 27 years, this newspaper has been a critical part of Regina’s social, cultural and democratic infrastructure. Don’t let us fade away. There’s only one Prairie Dog. If it’s destroyed, it’s never coming back.
