The lineup for the 2015 TD Winnipeg International Jazz Festival is out and jazz music lovers are in for a treat.
The festival will take over Winnipeg’s Exchange District June 11-21, with performances from local, national and international artists.
Artists include Grammy Award-winning singer Esperanza Spalding presenting Emily’s D+Evolution, blues legend Buddy Guy and The Screaming Eagle Of Soul, Charles Bradley, soul trailblazer Mavis Staples, piano great Kenny Barron, Blue Note Records’ Otis Brown III, and a very special world premiere ensemble performance from legendary jazz chameleon Dave Holland, Chris Potter, Lionel Loueke and Eric Harland.
“We’ve struck a great balance of modern and traditional jazz, legends and up-and-comers, accented by forward-thinking artists from the broader music landscape,” said executive producer Paul Nolin. “There’s something for everyone.”
