Heather Bambrick and Friends returns to the TD Toronto Jazz Festival as part of the “Festival Within The Festival”. This year’s series features some of country’s top legendary Jazz talents, as well as outstanding artists that Canada has exported south of the border.
The series takes place over four nights at the Home Smith Bar at the Old Mill, Toronto, and all four shows will once again be under the musical direction of the incomparable Russ Little, along with his phenomenal musicians: Tom Szczesniak (piano), Scott Alexander (bass), and Brian Barlow (drums).
The 2018 line-up of “Friends” may very well be one of the finest since the series began, and is sure to cause tickets to sell out quickly!
It all begins on Friday, June 22, with world-renowned trumpet and flugelhorn icon, incredible entertainer, and member of the Order of Canada, Guido Basso. (Click HERE for details.)
