Live and Local events are returning in full swing to Lynn Valley Village with a full slate of performers and family fun throughout the summer presented by the North Vancouver Recreation and Culture Commission. A downloadable calendar can be found here.

Live and Local

Each week new, emerging and accomplished performers will take to Lynn Valley Plaza for an array of entertainment to delight the young and old. Bring your chairs and settle in for some community fun from 6 – 8 pm.

Kicking off the season is Vancouver’s Pat Chessell. He has become known as one of the most exciting roots artists in Western Canada. Chessell’s rootsy vocal style, charismatic stage presence and expert musicianship (guitar) are winning over fans. While his mostly original music falls solidly under the broad umbrella of “Celtic,” Chessell’s range is prodigious and eclectic. It’s been variously described as straight-ahead “folk,” “upbeat Celtic influenced Canadian folk/pop,” and “moving mid-and-up-tempo contemporary Celtic” among other labels. His tunes have also, on occasion, tinged with Americana influences.

Artist Sessions

Take a mid-day break and chill with local artists at Lynn Valley Village with smaller concerts each week throughout the summer from 12 – 1 pm.

The season will start with Sabrielle –  a versatile singer and burgeoning songwriter with a diverse musical background and “New York City voice.” Born into a family of musicians, Sabrielle was singing before she could talk and harmonizing before she could walk. Whether it’s pop, gospel, jazz or R&B, Sabrielle’s soulful voice and intuitive storytelling breathe new life into every song she performs. As a songwriter, Sabrielle is inspired by pop icons like Sara Bareilles, Ingrid Michaelson, Alicia Keys and Lana Del Ray, layered with hints of the gospel, jazz and RnB that she grew up with. Her songs are an honest and emotional exploration of her own experiences of love, loss, dating,  divorce, feminism, mental health and what it means to be a queer, neurodivergent woman navigating life in the modern day.
