Friday, July 1 was Canada Day, and SummerStage kept the festivities going with a free show in Central Park on Saturday (7/2), featuring Patrick Watson, Canadian Inuk singer-songwriter Elisapie, and La Force (aka Ariel Engle of Broken Social Scene). Pictures by Ellen Qbertplaya are in this post.

For the whole of his set Patrick was joined by string ensemble Attacca Quartet, as well as Ariel Engle. His friend, dancer Victoria Aletta, also joined him for a song. Opening with "Lost With You," Patrick's set included Canadian hit "Je te laisserai des mots" and "Melody Noir," and he encored with what are arguably his two biggest songs in America, "To Build a Home" and "Lighthouse." Check out Patrick's setlist below.

Patrick will be on tour this fall supporting new album Better in the Shade. All dates are listed, along with a stream of the album, are listed below.
