Thanks to all our volunteers, sponsors, artists, technical team, design team, promotion team, media supporters and partners as well as to the many businesses in Merrickville, and last but not least, our terrific audiences for making MJF 2016 the fantastic experience that many, many of you are telling us it was!

MJF is over for another successful year and we are grateful to the many dedicated, hard-working people who contributed to its success.

As previously announced, a new team will come on board to oversee the coordination of the annual jazz festival. Peggy Holloway, founding Festival Director since 2011, is stepping down and the new MJF Festival Director, Susan Piercey, will take over the position. Thank you, Peggy, for your invaluable contribution, and Welcome Susan!

Artistic Director Karen Oxorn and Website/ Financial Manager Richard Holloway are also stepping down this year. A big thank you to both of them for their important contributions. MJF’s new Artistic Director is Ralph Hopper; welcome Ralph!

We can all look forward to what Susan and Ralph will bring to MJF in the 2017 transition year. We celebrate their interest and enthusiasm.

Thanks again to everyone – and in particular to the people of Merrickville – for getting behind the festival and demonstrating the pride and passion that they do. It was noticed and commented on throughout the festival by many musicians and audience members who participated in MJF 2016.
