There’s also the popular Stagedoor Stories series, which this year will host intimate conversations and performances from children’s music icons Sharon & Randi Hampson in a Sharon, Lois & Bram Sing-along, and two-time JUNO Award winner and folk superstar Valdy.

Looking ahead to the fall and winter, Brampton On Stage has even more big name Canadian acts coming to town including  Jully Black, Finger 11 and 54.40.
