Local sax­o­phon­ist and band­leader Sean Irvine’s Kind Neigh­bours project opens for Preser­va­tion Hall Jazz Band on Thurs­day, June 20, while French-Amer­i­can singer Lau­ra Anglade opens the Veron­i­ca Swift show on Sat­ur­day, June 22.

2024 sees the TD Win­nipeg Inter­na­tion­al Jazz Fes­ti­val back at the beau­ti­ful Knox Unit­ed Church in Winnipeg’s Cen­tral Park neigh­bour­hood, fea­tur­ing the acclaimed Afro­fu­tur­ist jazz of Isa­iah Col­lier + The Cho­sen Few, opened by local sax and vocal up-and-com­er INGIA, on Thurs­day, June 14.

For our 35th year, we’re going to con­tin­ue to groove togeth­er in down­town Win­nipeg with artists that rep­re­sent the breadth of what’s excit­ing in the con­tem­po­rary jazz world,” said Jazz Winnipeg’s exec­u­tive direc­tor Angela Heck. From the genre exper­i­ments of singer Veron­i­ca Swift to the time­less New Orleans par­ty that Preser­va­tion Hall Jazz Band bring to the stage, there’s an old-meets-new cur­rent run­ning through the music that these incred­i­ble artists will present on the 2024 TD Win­nipeg Inter­na­tion­al Jazz Fes­ti­val stage.”
