We work hard to bring you music all year long. Our concert series features a range of established and up-and-coming artists, both local and out-of-province. We strive to present four concerts in the fall and four in the spring. Our venues change throughout the town but the calibre of performers on stage is consistently top notch. You can expect smaller venues with unique and intimate performances with the artists as well as larger venues offering a bigger musical experience.
Folk Fiesta! is our annual fundraiser and considered part of the concert series. The fiesta strives to give our audience a glimpse of the upcoming festival lineup. The evening typically consists of 3 performers who are scheduled to perform at that year’s festival, a silent auction, cash bar, canteen, photo booth, and merchandise tables to boot!
The Young Folks concert is also a staple in our series lineup. This concert brings to the stage young local performers who have been mentored and/or received scholarships through Lunenburg Folk Harbour Society. It’s an opportunity to put these hardworking students in the spotlight to have their voices heard—we are committed to inspiring the next generation of festival performers!
