Eight-show series features performances Tuesday evenings, plus lunchtime dates Mondays

Tuesday evenings will swing at Surrey Civic Plaza this summer.

A variety of musical acts will perform there during the city’s free Music on the Plaza concert series, launched yesterday (July 10) by the retro-sounding vocal trio Beauty Shop Dolls (Amanda Williamson, Nadia von Hahn and Sara Walters).

The eight-date series will feature jazz, Cuban, country, swing and other sounds every Tuesday starting at 6:30 p.m.

Other concerts this summer include Sweetpea Swing Band (July 17), Van Dhango (July 24), Uno Mas (July 31), Kutapira (Aug. 7) and Taylor Rae & The Backseat Drivers (Aug. 28). The performers on Aug. 14 and 21 are to be determined, according to a post on the city’s website, at surrey.ca/culture-recreation/26809.aspx.

Also at the plaza this summer are new Lunch & Lyrics concerts that start at noon Mondays, with a different food truck on site each week.
