Red Deer’s Ross Street Patio will resound with some snappy jazz and toe-tapping bluegrass music this week.

Jazz vocalist Lauren Busheikin will perform on Wednesday from 4:15 to 6 p.m. and Thursday from 11:45 a.m. to 1 p.m.

Trained in both jazz and classical styles, Busheikin brings a strong vocal presence and original music to the stage.

Then on Friday from 5 to 8 p.m., another festive Patio Party will get underway, this time featuring the local band Waskasoo.

The bluegrass group will get everybody moving to the music during the second of three Patio Parties slated for this summer.

“Waskasoo has a fun, high-energy bluegrass style that will have everyone stomping their feet,” said Peter McGee, special events programmer for the City of Red Deer. “These guys are sure to have the city core hopping.”
