Blenders 2017-18 concert season kicks off at Lyric Theatre, Sept. 30, 2017

Written by 

The 2017-18 Blenders Art + Music concert season at the Lyric Theatre in Swift Current started with high-energy performances by two very different groups, Sept. 30. The Montreal duo, Les Deuxluxes, started the evening with their unique brand of vintage surf rock. Thereafter the audience was treated to an enthusiastic trash folk performance by Montreal singer-songwriter and New Brunswick native Lisa LeBlanc and her band. The annual Blenders concert series brings live performances by some of Canada's best musicians to Swift Current. There are 13 regular concerts during the 2017-18 season. The next concert on Oct. 21 will feature Winnipeg band Lanikai along with Swift Current roots singer-songwriter Jacqueline Hudec and roots and blues musician Rob Hudec of Medicine Hat.
