August 14 to 19
Prince Edward County, ON
This year’s festival main stage shows are deep in big-name Juno and Grammy royalty - Robi Botos, Carol Welsman, and the Brian Barlow Big Band - we’ll showcase saxophonists Tara Davidson, the JUNO-winning Allison Au, bassist Marika Galea, violinist Drew Jurecka, and pianist Adrean Farrugia. The festival makes it a point to support emerging artists, and we bring back outstanding young performers who have a history with us. Marika Galea will be playing every day this year. She came to us first as part of her high school band that participated in our jazz education program, and then won the Rising Young Star award, and later performed on our stage with her own groups. Drew Jurecka returns after his highly-acclaimed run as our featured artist in 2017.
