In Winnipeg Music News...The 2011 Winnipeg Jazz Festival

>> Friday, 15 April 2011

Shad! Shad! Shad!

The lineup for the 2011 Winnipeg International Jazz Festival dropped earlier this afternoon and, as in years past, it boasts an exciting, highly eclectic roster of musical acts that span/fuse many, many genres (in other words, Jazz Festival continues to be a misnomer).

Running from June 16 – 25, the ten day soiree trucks in some intriguing artists including: singular hip-hopper Shad (Pyramid on the 24th), the-previously-mentioned Blonde Redhead (Pyramid on the 20th), the still-virile Robert Plant & The Band of Joy (Centennial Concert Hall on the 21st), and post-rockers The Appleseed Cast (Old Market Square on June 18th).

And there’re a whole slew of great acts to check out (for free!) at Old Market Square: This Hisses, Nova, Les Jupes, The Liptonians, Royal Canoe, The Appleseed Cast, Paradigm Brass, The Tight Fits, The Blue Fisher Band, The Noble Thiefs, The Lytics, Moses Mayes and on and on.

Above is just a selective sampling of acts (accounting for this site's demo), so for the full lineup, please visit Jazz Winnipeg’s website here.

So...who are you most excited to see? You know my vote.
