With The 39 Days of July now underway, Walkabout Wednesdays are a popular way to take a midweek stroll through the downtown core, then make your way back to City Stage at City Square for shows starting at 7:30 p.m.

Bring your lawn chairs and your neighbours and get ready for some “Hump Day” fun, kicking off at 7:30 Wednesday, June 29 (tonight) with The Choir — a 90-100 voice community choir from Larsen’s Music in Victoria, followed at 8:30 p.m. by Pat Temple and the Hi Lo Players offering hillbilly jazz sounds from Ontario.

On Wednesday, July 6 the early (7:30 p.m.) show is The Misha Piatigorsky Trio in which a Russian piano virtuoso merges of the worlds of serious jazz and pop.

At 8:30 p.m. that night the mood changes completely when Cécilé Doo-Kingué brings her blues, groove and soul stylings to the stage.

Unusual is the name for the offerings on Wednesday, July 13.

At 7:30 p.m., it’s nFuze, whose jazz fusion came together “out of the love of Pat Metheny landscapes,” says 39 Days guru, Longevity John Falkner.

Then, at 8:30 p.m., Novel Voz, seven voices from Cuba, present their a cappella sounds.

Eric Harper, a graduate of Boston’s Berklee School of Music, takes City Square stage at 7:30 p.m. on July 20 combining flamenco-styled guitar playing with his songwriting abilities making each of his performances a memorable moment.

Then, at 8:30 p.m. Wil, a Valley favourite roots/rock recording artist now living on Vancouver Island, heads up a trio with himself on guitar-vocals backed by a drummer and keyboardist-vocalist.

Wednesday, July 27, with the whole Valley talking Sunfest, Walkabout Wednesdays takes everyone to the country for a windup to the series.

At 7:30 p.m. Big River, the popular Johnny Cash Tribute will bring their sound to Duncan City Square.

Then, at 8: 30 p.m. Dirty Mountain offers plenty of original country roots rock.
