Whale of a Jam

Friday, May 31st

Catch an all-star blues jam in the Engineered Air Theatre at Arts Commons, featuring Arts Commons Presents’ favourites: Dawn Tyler Watson, Tim Williams, Yolanda Sargeant, Ollee Owens with the Timothonius Trio!

You may have seen the award-winning Dawn Tyler Watson previously this year in Queens of the Blues (with co-star Shemekia Copeland) in the Jack Singer Concert Hall at Arts Commons – but here’s your chance to catch her up close and personal. The blues musician and arts educator is returning to deliver the keynote presentation at Arts Commons Education’s signature event – the 2024 Arts ReimaginED Summit – on Saturday, June 1. We couldn’t help but kick things off a night early with Watson, some friends, and a few decorative whales handmade by students in our Education programs (trust us, they’re pretty cool!).

Intimate, fiery blues shows in the Engineered Air Theatre are a beloved tradition with Arts Commons Presents – this is a warm return and thank-you to those who have missed them.

The CKUA Events Calendar is a listing of music, arts, and culture happenings for the whole province. It is a terrific resource that CKUA offers to the community, to share details about concerts, gallery openings, plays, and films.

Please note that due to the amount of listings, we publish events that focus on music, arts, or culture. While we’d love to publish all submitted items, the sheer number of events means that we sometimes have to decline submissions.

Need to change or update your submitted event?

Email details to and the CKUA team of calendar volunteers will do the rest.
