2022 JAZZFEST REGINA Bushwakker performance – TWO JUNO AWARD WINNERS – JOCELYN GOULD QUARTET featuring WILL BONNESS
JazzFest Regina is back and Bushwakker is pleased to be the host venue for two festival concerts this year. Our second performance features two Juno Award-winning artists! Guitarist and vocalist, Jocelyn Gould, won the 2021 Juno Award for Jazz Album of the Year. She has been called “a leader in the next generation of great mainstream jazz guitarists.” Her joyful energy has captivated audiences around the world and her passion for music is infectious. She has absorbed the influences of the jazz guitar greats and has woven them into an exciting personal sound. Gould displays her influence from guitar greats such as Wes Montgomery, Grant Green, Kenny Burrell and Joe Pass. Her unique ability to connect with audiences always leaves them wanting more. Jocelyn is a professor and Head of Guitar Department at Humber College in Toronto. The featured pianist in this quartet is Will Bonness who recently won the 2022 Juno Award for Jazz Album of the Year. The Winnipeg pianist’s third recording proved to be gold. This is the first Juno Award for Bonness, who has been active on the international jazz scene for more than two decades. Rush seating tickets are $20.
