2018 TD Markham Jazz Festival announces five-time Grammy winner and world-renowned headliner for Saturday night, August 18!

Among more than 30 free concerts on three stages and along Main Street from Friday August 17 through Sunday August 19, we could not be more proud to present jazz legend Dee Dee Bridgewater as our Saturday night headliner!
She performs from 9:00 to 10:30 p.m. on the Pfaff Town+Country BMW Stage at Unionville’s iconic Millennium Bandstand.

Dee Dee Bridgewater

Over a multifaceted career spanning four decades, Grammy and Tony Award-winning jazz giant Dee Dee Bridgewater has ascended to the upper echelon of vocalists, putting her unique spin on standards, as well as taking intrepid leaps of faith in re-envisioning jazz classics.
The three-time Grammy-winner recently won the Grammy for Best Jazz Vocal Album for Eleanora Fagan (1915-1959): To Billie With Love From Dee Dee. Bridgewater has performed with such jazz notables as Max Roach, Sonny Rollins and Dizzy Gillespie.
She has also had a stellar career in such theatrical musicals as “The Wiz,” “Lady Day” and “Cabaret”. She recently received a National Endowment for the Arts Jazz Masters Fellows Award at the Kennedy Centre.
We are thrilled to welcome Dee Dee to the TD Markham Jazz Festival!
