Indie Fridays: Iskwé, POESY, Lydia Ainsworth
Score big at YONGE-DUNDAS SQUARE (YDS) with CHEVROLET INDIE FRIDAYS, the popular multicultural free concert series every Friday night in the Heart of the City, from June 29 to August 31. Join YDS on the sunny side of the street for ten weeks of performances from Canada’s brightest artists!
And, each week two Canadian graffiti artists will come together to showcase their unique creative style and individuality while drawing inspiration from the music of the week. The canvas for their art will be a wrapped Chevrolet Cruze Sedan that will provide a striking visual amidst the vibrant lights and sounds of the Square.
On Friday, July 27, girl power takes over the square with a bewitching lineup of singer-songwriters. First, Juno-nominated Iskwé commands the stage with her genre-blending beats and powerful voice. POESY, taking her name from the archaic word for poetry, follows with her captivating lyrical work. Headlining is another Juno nominee, Lydia Ainsworth, recognized internationally for merging classical and pop into a dulcet, one-of-a-kind style.
