What could be better than a soft summer evening outdoors experiencing live music. We think not much and so every summer the Hilliard Arts Council hosts a Sunday evening concert series featuring an eclectic mix of performers and music styles. The concerts are free to the public and held in front of the Hilliard Civic and Cultural Arts Center beginning at 7pm (we move inside the building if the weather’s bad). Our concerts are in the Old Hilliard DORA zone, so feel free to bring a beverage from any of the participating taverns and restaurants.
Big Little Lions are an award winning duo who were born out of a collaboration that won them a JUNO Award in 2014. Since then they have been cranking out infectious folk pop songs that are jam-packed with emotion and tight harmonies that sound like the product of two people working side-by-side instead of living in different countries. They have released 6 albums to date, which have garnered them awards and nominations including the CFMA Ensemble of the Year, Independent Music Awards Americana Sing of the Year and John Lennon Songwriting Competition Song of the Year. Their critically acclaimed music has appeared on the CBC’s Top 20 and featured on shows like q and Vinyl Cafe. The duo consists of Paul Otten and Helen Austin, both hugely prolific songwriters – their music has been placed in hundreds of movie trailers, ads, network TV shows.
This year the Summer Concert Series is made possible in part due to the generous support of Coffee Connections, Raising Cain’s, Rotary Club of Hilliard, Blue Oak Patio and Landscape and Westwood Collective
