Toronto’s Kensington Market Jazz Festival Announces 2020 Virtual Festival Lineup

The Toronto Kensington Market Jazz Festival will be on Saturday, November 7th & Sunday, November 8th.  The festival will begin at 5:00 pm EST.  The first-ever virtual edition will include Jackie Richardson, Joe Sealy, Dave Young, Robi Botos, Mike Downes, Larnell, Billy Newton-Davis, and more.  The weekend will also include two yet-to-be-announced special guest performances from Champian Fulton and Brandi Disterheft.

While the Festival’s format streamed to KensingtonJazz.com may look a little different this year, the spirit remains the same.

Quote from Festival founder, singer-songwriter, artist, and philanthropist Molly Johnson

Over the past five years, the Kensington Market Jazz Festival has been proud to showcase hundreds of established musicians on the Toronto and Canadian jazz scene in one of the city’s most vibrant neighbourhoods in the heart of Toronto’s heritage district. However, in these pandemic times, we are all forced to experience a different capacity of life. This year, we’ve had to make some tough choices and, though producing within a limited schedule was very difficult for the KMJF team, we are pleased to present a two-day festival with online shows that can be enjoyed by Canadians coast to coast!
