Much of the inspiration for the upcoming exhibit, The Art of Jazz, came from our local jazz scene in Nova Scotia. I couldn't be happier to announce that a group of incredible jazz musicians will be performing live jazz for the opening reception on June 29th including: Paul Barrett is bandleader of the Back Alley Big Band (performing at this year's Jazz Festival on July 10th) and also director of the Nova Scotia Honour Jazz program, Jeff Goodspeed is well known for both his musicianship and his support and promotion of Cuban jazz through his incredible project Los Primos, Dave Burton is an award-winning drummer whose career has taken him around the world, and Geordie Haley is an accomplished guitarist, composer and improviser. The stage is set for fine art and live jazz - see you there!
