CANCELLED: Lucky Punk

CONCERT CANCELLED – The storm band we’ve been tracking seemed like it would rain itself out and dissipate by 6:30pm, but alas the radar shows it staying for much of the evening. So regrettably, tonight’s concert is cancelled. Keep your fingers crossed for dry weather next week.

We invite you to bring a blanket or chair to sit on and select a spot in the back yard to enjoy listening to the slow, 90s-esque vocals of local singer Evan Crider, accompanied by deep, honest and personal lyrics written by the artist himself.

August 12

Rebekah Foster

Renfrew Museum and Park welcomes Rebekah Foster to the stage. Rebekah’s style is an intriguing mix of finger picking, slap-guitar, and rhythmic strum patterns with powerful melodic vocals and a broad scope of lyrics. She relies heavily on word-painting and jazz chord techniques, creating a sound that is altogether sweet and ethereal as it is passionate and bold – a style that critics have said is “in a class of its own.”

August 19

Note Riders

Renfrew welcomes back the Note Riders to our summer concert series and we are pleased to welcome them to the stage. They will perform a mix of classic rock, jazz rock, and jazz fusion.

August 26

Buck Fisher and Friends

Buck Fisher and Friends will play bluegrass music for our guests as the final performance to close out Renfrew’s 2021 Judy Elden Memorial Summer Concert series. Enjoy an evening of down-home music against the beauty of Renfrew’s Museum House yard.

Help Support Renfrew's Summer Concert Series

Judy Elden was a valued Renfrew employee and worked the summer concert series for many years. She loved music and would greet guests entering the park, tap her feet to the beat during the concert and wish concert guests well as they left for the evening. Sadly, Judy passed away in March 2019. Our annual summer concert series is now named in her memory.
