Outdoor Curbside Concert by James Reckseidler

Sunday July 11, 2pm (FREE)
410 Crescent Road NW

James Reckseidler is a solo performer, writer, recording artist, and is the lead singer for the Calgary rock act, reijo. Part Bono, part Johnny Cash, and a little John Lennon; James brings raw energy and emotion to all he does and to his original songs. Experience James intimately, connect, and find the uplifting power of his sweeping melodies and reflective, poetic lyrics.  

Drop by to enjoy some live music outdoors, and don’t forget to bring your own chair or blanket!

Outdoor Curbside Concert by Jeremy Gignoux

Tuesday July 6, 8pm (FREE)
125 7 Ave NW

Bring your own chair, meet some neighbours, and enjoy Crescent Heights’ first curbside concert of the summer.
Jeremy Gignoux is ever oscillating between calling himself a violinist or a fiddler. Playing in between those lines, he has developed an original sound and technique push the boundaries of the style into modern jazz, free jazz, but also Ragtime and Eastern European traditional music. Jeremy is also a Crescent Heights resident!

Host a Curbside Concert on Your Block

We are excited to present two amazing Crescent Heights musicians to perform curbside concerts.  As a host, you will provide the outdoor space (your front lawn), work out the date, time, and details with the musician, coordinate with the CHCA and invite friends and neighbours to the concert.  The host will also need to apply for a “block party” permit with the City of Calgary so that people can safely bring their chairs and socially distance right on the road (unfortunately, this will not work on bus route roads). The host must be a Crescent Heights resident.  There is no cost to the host.

This initiative is funded by the City of Calgary Ward Grant.
