FREE CONCERT : Canada Day Celebration with Joel Plaskett & Friends

Lucky Nova Scotians. On July 1st, at Alderney Landing in Dartmouth, NS, Dartmouth Crossing presents a free show for Canada Day. It’ll be filled to the brim with great music, fireworks... and did I mention it's free?

There will be events all over the Halifax Regional Municipality. Wear your best 'red & white', and enjoy a pancake breakfast, sing Oh Canada from the top of Citadel Hill, watch the Tattoo Parade in Downtown Halifax or go for the Family Picnic on the Commons. Gather the whole family and attend the outdoor concert on the Dartmouth Waterfront featuring Joel Plaskett Emergency and a line-up selected by the Juno award winner himself.

Here's the line-up:

3:45-4:20 Rose Cousins from PEI/ Halifax
4:30-5:05 Steve Poltz from San Diego
5:20-6:00 David Myles from Fredericton/ Halifax
6:20-7:00 English Words from PEI
7:20-8:00 Deep Dark Woods from Saskatchewan
8:30-10:00 Joel Plaskett Emergency from Shannon/Clayton/Creighton/Point Pleasant Park
The fireworks and later show by Telfer will follow.

To get you in the spirit to celebrate Canada's 143rd birthday, here's a little tune called "True Patriot Love" by headliners Joel Plaskett Emergency:
