With an electrifying voice and lyrics like silver arrowheads, Basia Bulat has become one of Canada’s most conspicuous talents. Juno nominated and shortlisted for the prestigious Polaris Music Prize, she often appears solo in gigantic halls, winning over crowds with an autoharp or charango, stomping feet and two mighty lungs. Her massive talent has also been recognized at scale: her songs have been adapted for major performances with symphony orchestras, and she’s been tapped for prestigious tributes to Leonard Cohen and The Band. Since releasing her debut in 2007, she has shared a stage with artists including Arcade Fire, The National, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, Daniel Lanois, St Vincent, Sufjan Stevens, Destroyer and Andrew Bird.
July 1, 8 to 10pm
The Darcys are an alternative pop duo from Toronto, Canada that combine the anthemic songwriting of The Killers and Arctic Monkeys with the dance-floor-ready fun of Chromeo and Justice. Always the life of the party, The Darcys’ music is lush with vibrant synths, 808s and funk bass that makes their sound feel as at home in today’s modern pop landscape as it would in a crate of classic vinyl. The Darcys last studio record, Centerfold, a California postcard rich with themes of escape was both a commercial and artistic breakthrough for the band. 2018 sees another evolution for The Darcys as they turn their gaze inward, writing songs with a maturity and social awareness not heard on previous releases. This isn’t to say the party is over, if anything it’s just begun.
Light up the Wonder
After debuting last summer, the Night Lights program returns for 2018 running nightly beginning from June 29th. This special event focuses on the interplay between light and the Niagara Parks Canadian Signature Experience, Journey Behind the Falls.
