brought the party to Check Ça last week. They stopped in to chat about upcoming Jazz Fest and Winnipeg Folk Fest shows for DCBB. If you missed it, download the podcast for May 29 on ckuw.ca
This week, we have a special feature with Joanna Majoko and Jocelyn Gould - two very talented and diverse musicians newer to the scene who have solo shows in the Winnipeg Jazz Festival this year. We'll also take a moment to celebrate some of the amazing female artists who have performed in the Jazz Fest over the years. Tune in!
Next week (June 12), we are very excited to have Curtis Nowosad for an interview. Mr. Nowosad is currently studying and performing in New York (US). Regular listeners will have heard his inventive and exciting recent 2nd album on the show. We'll chat about his adventures in NYC and his upcoming show in the Jazz Fest. Don't miss it!
