Fundy National Park of Canada
The Sounds of Summer
An outdoor summer concert series presented by Fundy National Park
It’s Saturday night and the sweet, salty air is full of the sounds of summer: crickets, waves rolling on the beach, a campfire crackling in the distance, and some of the finest music the Maritimes has to offer!
Join the party at our Outdoor Theatre every Saturday night in July and August.
Admission is included with your park entry pass.

Sandy MacKay & Bill Preeper — Saturday, July 5, 7:30 pm

You will be treated to some familiar tunes too, like the Beatles or Dylan. For this show, they’ll be joined by the brilliant percussionist Clinton Charlton.
Ryan LeBlanc — Saturday, July 12, 7:30 pm
Some of the most exciting acoustic music to come out of the East Coast of this country in recent years has flowed from the nimble fingers and exceedingly creative mind of multi-instrumentalist Ryan LeBlanc. LeBlanc’s music fuses together choice elements of jazz, blues, and world music to create a driving, rhythmic, highly melodic brand of acoustic music that manages to both stimulate and calm you at the same time.
Tomato/Tomato — Saturday, July 19, 7:30 pm
John and Lisa met while in graduate school for jazz performance at the New England Conservatory of Music. They have been together ever since. Originally a jazz duo, tomato/tomato has expanded into a fresh sounding, folksy twosome....
Joey Robin Haché — Saturday, July 26, 7:30 pm
Joey Robin Haché is an Acadian singer-songwriter. Armed with his guitar and with the influences of Bernard Adamus and Dédé Fortin as well as Louis-Jean Cormier, Sigur Ros and Tim Crabtree, he speaks about what surrounds him, of what torments him and defines him.
Cédric Vienneau — Saturday, August 2, 7:30 pm
Cédric Viéno tells tales of modern love stories, their beauty and their failings in the rocky backdrop of the Maritime North Shore. He has participated in the Festival en chanson de Petite-Vallée and the Festival International de la chanson de Granby in Quebec, and the Gala de la chanson de Caraquet.
Phil Flowers — Saturday, August 9, 7:30 pm
Under the heavy influence of American folk music, blues, and jazz, People People, creates the perfect atmosphere for Flowers’ fiercely imagist lyrics about social heartache, deception, and candour. Influenced by legends such as Bob Dylan, Tom Waits and at times Hank Williams, Phil Flowers is not content with the status quo and challenges the conception of what a singer/songwriter should be.
Jessica Rhaye — Saturday, August 16, 7:30 pm
A deep sense of warmth and comfort permeates Far Gone Lullabies, the fourth album by Jessica Rhaye. The stunning collection showcases Jessica’s soaring, winsome vocals, as well as her versatile songwriting, including co-writes with Canadian indie staples such as Ron Sexsmith and Royal Wood.
Jens Jeppeson — Saturday, August 30, 7:30 pm
Hailing from small-town North Western New Brunswick, Jens Jeppesen is a force to be reckoned with. With an acoustic guitar, a love of bluegrass, and the unforgiving work ethic that comes with a farm upbringing, he has independently recorded and released two full length studio albums, toured Ontario and the Maritimes many times over, and has established himself as a wildly talented musician.
