June 16, 2010 7:23 AM | Entertainment

Manitoba Homecoming 2010 is pulling out all the stops for a big name concert lineup on Saturday, July 3 to coincide with Queen Elizabeth II‘s visit to Winnipeg.

The Scotiabank stage at The Forks will host the free Concert for Human Rights, including a set of performers with local ties to the city.

The list of performers include Chantal Kreviazuk, Chic Gamine, Eagle & Hawk, Sierra Noble, Inward Eye, Keith and Renee, Dominique Reynolds, The Duhks, Corneille, Les Surveillantes, and both the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra and Royal Winnipeg Ballet.

A bilingual concert will follow the Queen’s visit, and will air on TFO later this year.

“We look forward to kicking off summer with a concert that not only showcases great local talent but promotes human rights at the same time,” said Kevin Walters, Executive Director of Manitoba Homecoming 2010.

The concert begins at 3 p.m.
