Grammy Award-winning musician Angélique Kidjo performed Saturday night during the second day of the three-day Boston Summer Arts Weekend festival in Copley Square.
Kidjo, from Benin, was one of 16 acts at the festival, which will be capped off Sunday by a performance from bluegrass-country artist Alison Krauss.
Before Kidjo took the Copley Square stage, Boston-based group Session Americana performed. Peabody’s Ryan Montbleau (center) joined the group on stage for part of its set.
Session Americana is known for its regular performances at the Lizard Lounge in Cambridge.
