Canada Day 2015 Parliament Hill Performances

While a number of recording artists performed at various cities across the country to celebrate Canada’s 148th birthday, the main televised extravaganza took place in Ottawa on Parliament Hill. It was a beautifully done affair with Francophones and Anglophones, women and men all sharing the stage together, something we need to see more often. Most performers played three songs, and a single group of professional musicians backed them all. We took some screen shots posted below with notes on each performer. You can watch a condensed version of the concert here with just one or two songs per artist.

1. Dance music superstar Kiesza opens the event with double platinum “Hideaway” and two more songs:
