Ottawa Jazz Festival Picks
It’s that time of year again. The snow is melting and Ottawa Jazz Festival has announced another great lineup, which means I’ll be attending back to back festivals for my summer vacation (the other one being Ottawa Blues Fest). Notable acts that I’ve found so far include Brian Wilson’s Pet Sounds 50th Anniversary Tour, Sarah McLachlan, Jazz at Lincoln Centre Orchestra with Wynton Marsalis, Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings, Elvin Bishop & Charlie Musselwhite, Buffy Sainte-Marie, Trombone Shorty and Orleans Avenue, Stacey Kent, Judith Hill, 24th Street Wailers, Mackenzie Rhythm Section, SFJazz Coillective and The Hot Sardines. Now all we need is some nice hot dry weather from June 22nd to July 17.
