Canada Day Entertainment Goes Multicultural
Canadian country music veteran Lisa Hewitt will headline this year’s Canada Day Celebrationâ€™s multicultural entertainment lineup, the Canada Day Committee announced this week. The 2005 CCMA Independent Female Artist of the Year will bring her blend of classic country music to the entertainment stage to kick off the celebration in Legacy Park on Friday, July 1.
â€śWith Hewitt launching a new show this summer, our Canada Day entertainment lineup will be bolstered by the enthusiasm she has brought to her shows since launching her career 14 years ago,â€ť said Canada Day Committee chair Judy Wolfe. â€śWe know parts her new show â€“ Little Ole Opry, Lisa Hewittâ€™s Classic Country Road Show â€“ will be brought to the Fort Saskatchewan stage. It will be great.â€ť
Following Hewitt, the Ambassadorial Band to Cuba will bring its fusion of Cuban-Canadian music to the stage. Also performing for the first time at the Canada Day Celebration will be the Our Lady of Angels Filipino Choir.
â€śWeâ€™re excited to be able to offer a stellar, multi-cultural lineup,â€ť said Wolfe. â€śEvery year, we aim to offer families a variety of entertainment. We’ve definitely achieved that this year.â€ť
