Make Music Harvard Square is inspired by the "Fête de la Musique" a street-music festival which started 28 years ago in Paris. The "Fête de la Musique" is now celebrated, under many names, in more than 300 cities in 108 countries, from London to Beijing to Buenos Aires. Harvard Square is proud to join in this worldwide celebration!
A complete schedule of amazing local, regional and national talent follows. Highlights of the day will include a signature mainstage in beautiful and historic Winthrop Park.
Stop by the park between 3pm - 6pm to catch Canadian artists Pays D'Abondance (Land of Plenty). From Témiscamingue Lake in Quebec to the Acadian shores, singer-songwriters, Isabelle Cyr and Yves Marchand offer you their original songs and well known traditional pieces from the Quebec and Acadian repertoire. Through their music and tales they share humorous and passionate stories about their history and heritage. With spellbinding rhythms of the piano, the drums and the autoharp, the irresistible duo blends their voices and cultures forwhat will be an unforgettable performance.
