JAZZ @ THE BOLT RETURNS! February 4th / 5th, 2023

Jazz Impresario Cory Weeds brings together the best of Vancouver’s jazz talent with renowned artists from across Canada and internationally. Last year, despite COVID restrictions limiting the venues to half-capacity, the Shadbolt was filled with joyous and celebratory energy. This year, with full-capacity audiences and an even stronger lineup, the event is sure to be better than ever.

This year's programming features a varied and extraordinarily talented roster. We’ve teamed up with Tim Reinert of Infidels Jazz to present a handful of emerging artists over the two days.

Saturday, February 4th is headlined by alto saxophonist Jesse Davis with The Spike Wilner Trio, Lezlie Harrison & her group, and tenor saxophone phenom Seamus Blake with the Vancouver Jazz Orchestra.

Sunday, February 5th features performances by pianist Miki Yamanaka with Mark Turner and The Generations Quartet featuring the daughter/father combo of clarinetist Virginia MacDonald and tenor saxophonist Kirk MacDonald.

Other highlights include Sienna Dahlen/Bill Coon, the James Danderfer Sextet, Indo-Jazz Fusion project Raagaverse led by Shruti Ramani, André Lachance’s Quator, and many more!
