Tuesday’s rain left and was replaced by bright skies as we headed back to Montreal Jazz Festival for Day 7! We started our evening at the Rio Tinto stage, for Pascuala Ilabaca y Fauna, who replaced Weather Station after a last-minute cancellation. The Chilean singer-songwriter and her band put on a colorful shows, with traditional sounds and lyrics treating on feminist and political issues!
Next, we headed to MTelus to catch Awir Leon opening the show. The Dunkirk singer-songwriter-producer put on a hell of a performance, showcasing his many talents including dancing! A solid opening set to get the crowd hyped for the main act of the night.
Around 9.30pm, the intro horns of Iron blasted through the venue as French singer Woodkid emerged on stage. This was his second of two nights at MTelus, and his grand return to the Jazz Festival after a glorious opening show back in 2014. Last night’s concert has been announced for 2020 and postponed by two years, so needless to say the crowd was excited to finally be reunited with him. With an insane stage setup and a full band (including violinis and horns), Yoann put on an epic performance, showcasing songs from his latest album S16, as well as classics like Brooklyn, I Love You, The Golden Age, and a tremendous finale with Run Boy Run.
Montreal Jazz Festival is taking place downtown from June 30th to July 9th 2022. For tickets and more information, visit montrealjazzfest.com.
