FRIDAY, AUGUST 28 – Don’t miss Dayna downtown for a truly unique performance during Streetside LIVE!
Juno nominated artist Dayna Manning exemplifies the very best that Canadian Folk music can be. Her cool clear voice along with her insightful songs represent a history of Canadian musical art that goes back to the early ’60s and sounds just as vital today. A modern renaissance artist, Dayna recently produced Trent Severn’s third album “Portage”, designed the Stratford Festival’s best selling 60th anniversary t-shirt, and just produced her latest album “Morning Light” with the help of Stratford Festival alumnus Ben Bolt-Martin arranging for chamber orchestra. She recently penned her first book “Many Moons: A Songwriter’s Memoir” which was released by Blue Moon Publishers in October 2019. In 2016 Dayna founded the “Folk Army”, a private music instruction academy in Stratford Ontario. The Folk Army’s mission is to empower young girls to make a positive change in their communities through creativity, thoughtful performance and positive self-esteem.
For Streetside LIVE! Dayna will be joined by Stephan Szczesniak on drums and Stratford Inner Chambers members Andrew Chung on violin and Ben Bolt-Martin on cello.
