Jazz Winnipeg has announced that New Orleans musical mainstays Preservation Hall Jazz Band and multi-genre vocal phenom Veronica Swift will headline evenings at the Burton Cummings Theatre on Thursday, June 20 and Saturday, June 22, respectively. 

“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 in a news release.

“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.”

Local bandleader and saxophonist Sean Irvine's Kind Neighbours project opens for Preservation Hall with French-American singer Laura Anglade opening for Veronica Swift. 

The festival returns to the city's Central Park neighbourhood to hear acclaimed Afrofuturist jazz of Isaiah Collier + The Chosen Few perform at Knox United Church on Thursday, June 14. The next night, Benny Green: Solo Piano performs in the venue with local star Jocelyn Gould opening the show. On Monday, June 17,  guitar-led Pasquale Grasso Trio play in the space with local openers Free Time.
