TD MJF announces Opening Night Concert, Thursday, August 18 at 8:00 PM!

 
You don’t want to miss Molly Johnson at TDMJF’s Opening Night Concert, Thursday, August 18! Exclusive ticketed event –seating is limited!
 
The TD Markham Jazz Festival is proud to continue its tradition of presenting the industry’s most talented artists with the appearance of JUNO-winning singer, songwriter and recording artist Molly Johnson for this year’s Opening Night Concert at Unionville’s beautiful Varley Art Gallery.
 
Smokey, sultry, playful – Molly Johnson’s music speaks to an emotional depth that few vocalists reach. Her voice is filled with humour, joy, surprise, sassiness and love. Ross Porter, CEO, Jazz.FM91, notes, “Songs are lucky when Molly Johnson records them.” Her two latest releases, “The Molly Johnson Songbook,” and “Because of Billie,” confirm her place as one of North America’s leading jazz vocal interpreters, while her roles as a philanthropist and Officer of The Order of Canada make her a pure Canadian treasure.
 
As a bonus, dynamic saxophonist Alison Young will open the evening’s music. Alison wowed fans in Markham earlier this year when she accompanied keyboard sensation Tyler Yarema In one of the Festival’s periodic Hot Spot performances at the Duchess Pub in Markham Village.
 

Seating is limited to fewer than 100, so order your tickets now!

 
The only ticketed event of each year’s Festival has become a sought-after way to launch a weekend of outstanding music. For $60 per person, attendees enjoy refreshments, a silent auction and excellent viewing in an intimate, club-like setting. Sign up right now at www.markhamjazzfestival.com, or by phone at 905-471-5299.
