Spirited Performers         Thurs.      TCU Place

They’ve shot up the music charts with the single Spirits and now it’s your chance to see The Strumbellas live in our city. The Canadian group has been hard to define as they blend folk, pop and bluegrass together into a completely unique sound. It’s uplifting and inspired music. The Strumbellas have a new album out called Hope and the group is out on tour in support of it. Opening for The Strumbellas is Saskatoon’s own Close Talker.  Catch them at TCU Place, tickets are $27.50

Teen Theatre               Now – Sat.            The Refinery

It’s silly, sometimes poignant and always relevant to aspiring youth who want to express themselves through theatre. The Floyd Festival is back for it’s 11th year with five new shows to entertain. This festival was started by Andy Carlson-McNab who named the festival after his uncle Floyd Carlson. Uncle Floyd willed the money to his great-nephew to pursue his dreams in theatre. In this festival all the writers, directors and performers are under the age of 25. Their motto is ‘Creativity, Confidence & Community’ and they are creating just that. Tickets are $10-$15.
