Thank you for joining us!
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, @JazzInToronto launched a curated live-stream series in 2020 which brought the music of Toronto musicians to audiences far beyond our city. Participating musicians have ranged from emerging artists to rising stars and seasoned award-winning artists. In January & February 2022 the series is back, via the JazzInToronto Facebook page.
The concerts are a “pay-what-you-can” style, free to view with a request for audience members who tune in to send a tip during the broadcast via PayPal or e-transfer; all proceeds will go to the artists
“We love giving the musicians an opportunity to share their art, while inviting the audience to show their appreciation, now more than ever we are happy to keep our community connected.” Lina Welch
February 12th – Singer/Songwriter/Keyboardist Janet Whiteway will join us for “a tribute to a cold Canadian winter” and do all Can Con. Joni Mitchell, Gino Vannelli, Burton Cummings, Neil Young, Jane Siberry, Gordon Lightfoot, Ian Thomas, Leonard Cohen, Jann Arden and some originals.
February 24th – Raha Javanfar & Fraser Melvin play a variety genres from Blues to 50s/60s style R&B, rock ‘n’ roll, country, and more. Fraser on guitar, Raha on fiddle or bass, and both of them belting their powerful vocals, they are a force to be reckoned with as a duo.
Fraser fronts the Fraser Melvin Band, playing regularly at Toronto venues, and Raha’s band Bad Luck Woman & Her Misfortunes has received a Maple Blues Award nomination, and played at numerous festivals across the country.
