Why live music will ring inside London's tallest office tower during JUNOS week
Free noon-hour concerts will showcase a diverse mix of local performers
If you live or work downtown, grab your lunch and join us for the CBC London Nooners, free daily concerts next week as part of JUNOS festivities in London.
CBC London is partnering with the London Music Office and Sifton Properties to present the four performances.
The free noon-hour concerts will run March 11-14 from noon to 12:45 p.m.
The concerts will be on the mezzanine level of One London Place on the corner of Queens Ave. and Wellington Street downtown.
"We're taking the music to the people, that's the concept," said Cory Crossman, development officer with the London Music Office. "Let's get people out on their lunch hour, let's get them understanding the amazing music we have here."
The lineup for the CBC London Nooners will feature local talent from different musical genres: world music to house music, honkytonk to pop-rock.
Monday: Lorraine Klaasen, 2013 JUNO winner, World Music Album of the Year
Tuesday: Trance music DJ Khardiac
Wednesday: The Heartaches Stringband
Thursday: Ivory Hours
"It really wraps up the diverse music scene were have here," said Crossman of the London Music Office.
"We have four artists that are completely different, all totally different but all incredible in their own ways."
The 48th Juno Awards will be broadcast live on March 17 starting at 8 p.m. on CBC Television, CBC Radio One, CBC Music, the free CBC Gem streaming service, and globally at cbcmusic.ca/junos.
