Uptown Unplugged debuts
Uptown Unplugged made its debut in front of the Westminster Centre last weekend with organizers believing it will be a casual and fun format that will attract audiences throughout the summer.
The busker series features live music and street performers in the plaza area in front of the mall.
The Hyack Festival Association is producing the series.
“The outdoor patio seating seems to work really well in the plaza entrance,” said Hyack Festival president Gavin Palmer in an association press release. “Hopefully, people will catch on and join us each weekend throughout July and August.”
The series will run Saturdays and Sundays from noon to 5 p.m. until Aug. 25.
Last Saturday evening was also the second of Hyack’s Concerts on the Quay series with New Orleans-based singer Ray Bonneville headlining. The series will wrap up with the third and final concert Saturday, Aug. 3 featuring the blues duo of Hans Theessink and Terry Evans.
