The show will go on for TD Ottawa Jazz Festival with Tenacity

Although disappointed that the Nation’s Capital will not have the opportunity to enjoy jazz music at sunset on the most perfect June evenings, the TD Ottawa Jazz Festival has announced Tenacity; the completely free, online jazz musical adventure to help support artists affected by a summer without touring.

The show will go on from June 19 to June 28, when over 85 international, Canadian and local Ottawa artists will perform live to Jazz enthusiasts across Facebook and YouTube.  This online festival comes as the TD Ottawa Jazz Festival was forced to cancel the 40th edition of their popular June festival in the wake of COVID 19 restrictions and concerns.  Highlighting the festival will be performances by Ottawa-based jazz vocalist, Kellylee Evens, Juno and Felix-winning singer-songwriter, Elisapie, and the Polaris-nominated BadBadNotGood.

Performances will be a combination of live performances, and pre-recorded segments that will include animations by local Ottawa artists.  Also included with each performance will be a live chat hosted by jazz critic and writer, James Hale, which will allow fans of jazz additional insight into the musical experience.
