Yellowknife’s newest festival is set to kick off next month.
The festival will celebrate contemporary music from the 20th and 21st centuries, with a focus on percussion and big-band jazz for its first year.
So far, the festival’s lineup features fiddler and composer Wesley Hardisty, percussionist Nia Devetzis and The Midnight Blue Jazz Band – a traditional big band with 18 members based out of Calgary.
The three-day event will include concerts at NACC, free workshops and soundwalks, which are strolls where the goal is to listen to the environment, through the city’s historic Old Town.
