Westdale hosting live music in July

“Since the lockdown of our city several months ago, local musicians have been eager to get back on the stage… and The Westdale, has come up with a way to make that safely happen!” says the show’s producer and host Mike McCurlie.

Hamilton Originals: Live Music from The Westdale! will stream to audiences live from The Westdale stage every Thursday evening at 8:00 pm (EST) on YouTube and Facebook and will feature local artists who are truly original.

“We have a great line-up of local songwriters and singers. And, it’s not just about their songs, it’s about them! I’ll be interviewing each performer to dig deep into their songwriting as well as some stories from the road. It’ll be an ‘up close and personal’ look at each artist… but not too up close! Of course, we’ll be practicing social distancing in the theatre, and all equipment will be disinfected before and after each show,” says McCurlie, who is on the board of directors of The Westdale and is a vibrant local musician himself. “I’m hoping the shows will be a bit like an east coast kitchen party: musical friends having a good time,” says McCurlie.

Mike’s band, McCurlie, Doidge and Wiles, will kick off the online series on July 2 at 8:00 pm.
