The BlueShore Financial Centre for the Performing Arts is proud to announce its 13th year of the North Shore Jazz series, in partnership with the TD Vancouver International Jazz Festival. Ticketed shows will be held at Capilano University, the Kay Meek Centre and Presentation House Theatre, with a line-up of free, family-friendly shows at Civic Plaza, and the West Vancouver Memorial Library.
Series highlights include a tribute to the guitar music of the 50s and 60s by influential jazz guitarist Bill Frisell and his stellar band, a reunion of brothers, Dave and Phil Alvin who join forces again after 30 years, and pure jazz fusion magic with Lansiné Kouyaté, a balafon virtuoso from Mali, and French jazz vibraphonist, David Neerman. Enjoy the achingly souful voice and fabulous finger picking and slide guitar stylings of Kelly Joe Phelps and finally, closing the series is another not-to-be-missed reunion of Victoria swing band, Paul Pigat and the Smokin’ Jackets.
Three free shows will happen across the two weekends with the soulful stylings of The Nightcrawlers featuring Capilano University alumna Dawn Pemberton, Portland’s alt-Euro-cabaret, Vagabond Opera and local rock ‘n’ roll cowboy surfers, The Modelos.
