MJF proudly presents Diana Braithwaite and Chris Whiteley, LIVE in concert!


If you love vocal jazz standards and timeless blues, you absolutely cannot miss this live, limited-attendance concert in a truly idyllic setting! 

Diana Braithwaite is an award-winning vocalist who has made blues and jazz her passion. As one of the very few Black blues artists performing in Canada, she makes a point of reaching out to share the history and beauty of music along with her partner, nine-time Maple Blues Award winner Chris Whiteley.

Chris is a legendary multi-instrumentalist on the blues scene who started out 50 years ago and has worked with many of the greats along the way – Blind John Davis, Leon Redbone and Chuck Berry, to name a few.

Together they are a force to be reckoned with in the blues and jazz genres. For this engagement, they will appear as a quintet.

Established in 1998, the festival draws more than 25,000 residents and visitors to the streets of Unionville during the third weekend in August. Local and international artists deliver over 30 open-air performances during the weekend as well as in selected “hot spots” and at a ticketed opening-night concert.
