Fortress Louisbourg Association is pleased to announce that tickets are now on sale for all Louisbourg Live events happening this summer including LouisRocks, Looking, Portals, and much more.
Back by popular demand, the LouisRocks Concert Series will fill the air with great tunes in Louisbourg. The series kicks off on a blue note with Bluesfest in July. BluesFest will feature the best blues musicians the east coast has to offer including Thom Swift, Carson Downey, John Campbelljohn, Kim Wempe, and Curtis Matheson. With a solid rhythm line up of Kev Corbett, Kim Dunn, and Keith Mullins, this night can’t be missed.
Come August, the quay at the Fortress of Louisbourg will be rockin’ when Celtic supergroup Còig (Colin Grant, Chrissy Crowley, Rachel Davis, Darren McMullen, and Jason Roach), east coast favourite Jimmy Rankin, The Men of the Deeps and the Barra MacNeils will join in on the SuperFête celebrations.
New to Louisbourg Live this year are two musical theatre events. Looking is a Norm Foster play that tells the story of four singles who are seeking relationships. Portals, combines a three course meal with a musical production directed by Robyn Cathcart. Exploring Maritime life through historic elements of the Fortress the, original production follows interesting personalities, some of whom would have inhabited the 18th century settlement.
“Louisbourg Live is a great opportunity to showcase musical and theatrical talent in a unique venue,” says Mitch McNutt, General Manager at the Fortress Louisbourg Association. “We are excited to launch another exciting line-up of events this year and look forward to enhancing local and visitor experience in Louisbourg this summer.”
