An out­stand­ing slate of artists is set to per­form at the 2011 TD Win­nipeg Inter­na­tion­al Jazz Fes­ti­val. From June 1625, down­town Win­nipeg comes alive for more than 10 days of excep­tion­al live music fea­tur­ing the best local, nation­al and inter­na­tion­al artists.

Robert Plant and The Band of Joy, the New Gary Bur­ton Quar­tet, Trom­bone Shorty and Orleans Avenue, the Robert Glasper Trio, the Dirty Dozen Brass Band, and Juno Award Win­ners Kel­lylee Evans and Shad are among the more than sev­en­ty per­form­ers tak­ing part in this year’s festival!

Mean­while, at The Pyra­mid Cabaret, some of UMFM’s favorite acts are set to per­form, includ­ing indie icons Blonde Red­head, recent Juno Award-win­ner Shad, the Dirty Dozen Brass Band, leg­endary hip hop pro­duc­er Pete Rock, mes­mer­iz­ing New Orleans duo Quin­tron & Miss Pussy­cat and more.

As always, the fes­ti­val will once again present four days of free music in Old Mar­ket Square, as thou­sands of music fans are expect­ed in The Exchange Dis­trict for Open­ing Week­end, June 16 – 19. Each night in the park is loose­ly themed: Thurs­day fea­tures Latin jazz, Fri­day has jazz with some rhythm and blues, Sat­ur­day fea­tures some of Winnipeg’s most pop­u­lar indie rock tal­ent and Sun­day brings the funk with the return of Moses Mayes – an essen­tial annu­al tra­di­tion-along with jazz, fusion, and hip hop.
