Hannah Thomas Pops Up With Dock Music Concerts

The Stratford singer-songwriter's shows run every Sunday night through July 24.


Fresh off her 2022 Canadian Folk Music Award nomination for Young Performer of the Year, Canadian pop singer Hannah Thomas sets the stage for a summer of songs in Stratford, Ont., with the return of her third annual Dock Music Concert Series. Shows run every Sunday at 7 p.m. through July 24 in front of the Tom Patterson Theatre along the Avon River.

Hannah’s smooth and powerful vocals leave audiences captivated, and this season her stunning performances will be complemented by guest performers, themed shows, and duets with her father Dale Thomas — who was also featured on her recently released seasonal album Christmas Don’t Be Late.

With the setting sun’s magic golden hour as a stunning backdrop, Dock Music takes place atop a special mural by local artist Claire Scott. “She painted an incredible mural displaying the combination of music, art, and community, and how it brings us all together,” Hannah explains.

The inspiration behind the Just Sing Dock Mural takes a page from Hannah’s ethos for the event at large. “This summer concert series began in 2020 when the community needed a boost of happiness,” the 19-year-old award-winning singer and performer shares. “With that, I’m looking forward to another summer of wonderful music on the Avon River this year.”

With thanks to premium sponsors Danna Nicole, Tradition Mutual Insurance Co., Neumeister Motors and many other generous local sponsors, the weekly hour-long concert series is free to attend.

A breakthrough pop artist from Stratford, Thomas is a decorated performer, having earned accolades and accomplishments in both her hometown and across the country. Her soaring innate talent has seen her open for Alan Doyle of Great Big Sea at Aurora’s Magna Hoedown Showdown in 2019, and granted her opportunities with The Shot Canada, the Stratford Festival of Canada, Stratford Summer Music, renowned folk artist Dayna Manning (who produced Christmas Don’t Be Late) and more.
