SAVE THE DATES! The 4th annual edition of Merrickville’s Jazz Fest (MJF) takes place from Thursday October 16 to Sunday October 19, 2014. An exciting lineup of 18 concerts has been carefully chosen from the close to 60 artists who applied to perform this year. We’ll welcome back some Festival favourites as well as artists brand new to MJF from Montreal, Toronto and the Ottawa area. And for the first time, MJF will offer an opportunity for music students and young professional musicians to participate in a Master Class with one of Canada’s premier jazz pianists; stay tuned for more information. Starting it all off at our Grand Opening event on Thursday evening is Merrickville’s own Swing Bridge. Watch for the complete programme which will be unveiled here on Tuesday August 12 along with information on how to purchase tickets and passes for the entire event. We look forward to welcoming you for some terrific jazz in Merrickville this October!
