November 18, 2021 – Halifax, Nova Scotia: Fa-la-la-la-la Gather your friends and join the Evergreen Festival downtown on the Halifax Waterfront for the Evergreen Stage! Fresh off the win of “Event of the Year” from the Music Nova Scotia Awards and curated by the team at Halifax Jazz Festival, we’re excited to bring 14 days and nights of live-music to your winter wonderland. From November 26 - December 19, 2021 bundle up and get cozy stageside with our propane fire tables and picnic table pods to hear some of your favorite local bands and musicians.

In 2020 Evergreen Stage became Evergreen Screen, moving to an online experience, allowing people to enjoy holiday performances from the comfort and safety of home. This year, the Evergreen Stage returns for in-person shows! Kicking things off on Friday, Nov 26th, the first night brings a solo performance from Good Dear Good, followed by Halifax’s up-and-coming singing sensation Jody Upshaw, and last year’s fan favourite The Gilberts with their close three-part harmonies, soulful lyrics and compelling arrangements. Closing out the evening is Rankin & The Broken Reeds, known for their energetic and eccentric performances that will leave you rockin’ around the tree!

We return on Saturday, Nov 27th with an afternoon performance by young fiddle star Amelia Park, emerging songwriter Eriana Willis, multi-talented trumpeter and singer Paul St-Amand Soul Quartet, and singer-songwriter Gizelle De Guzman. We’re sure to stay cozy and warm as we kick off the evening with Willie Stratton, bringing his mix of country, surf rock, blues and rockabilly. Closing out the evening with an airtight rhythm section and searing horns laying the foundation for the five-foot firecracker lead vocalist of Roxy & The Underground Soul Sound.

Bring the whole family together for an afternoon matinee on Sunday, Nov 28th with fiddler Shannon Quinn, singer-songwriter Matt Steele, vocal powerhouse Jessie Brown, and folk musician Brad Reid.
