by Downtown Calgary · 0 comments

This week for downtown events we have music, moons, and marching! Whether you want to open your wallet for an evening of whisky tasting, or keep it closed and go for some free lunchtime entertainment, Downtown Calgary has something for you.

PROARTS@NOON SERIES
January 17th, 2018

Featuring: Jossy Gallegos, Zihuatanejo, Mexico and Tim Williams, Calgary, Canada

Jossy Gallegos is a talented and versatile singer-songwriter from Mexico. She began her professional career at the age of 9, putting her unique spin on traditional folk songs. At 21, she recorded her first album playing solo guitar in classic Trova, pop, bolero and romantic songs. For her second album, Little Bird , she recorded her own compositions.

Tim Williams is an international award-winning blues-based singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist. He is a 40-year veteran of the ‘Roots’ music scene in North America, with a history that stretches back to the coffee-house scene of his native California in the mid 60s.

This performance is free and runs over the lunch hour (12pm – 1pm) on January 17, 2018.

January 16-20, 2018

WOMEN’S MARCH CALGARY
January 20, 2018

In January 2017, all across Canada, we marched together in solidarity with Sister Marches around the world. Today, in Canada, we March On.

We believe that there is still work to do.
And so, we march on. 

On January 20, 2018, March On Canada – Calgary will be in solidarity with cities across North America for this anniversary event. We’ll be meeting outside in front of Bankers Hall on Stephen Avenue at noon and will walk up along Stephen Avenue to the Municipal Plaza.
