Event description

Description

Jane Bunnett is, without doubt, one of Canada’s most outstanding jazz musicians. A 5-time Juno winner, and a 3-time Grammy nominee aside, Jane is also a decorated Canadian: she is the recipient of the Order of Canada, Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Medal and the Premier’s Award for Excellence in the Arts.

With decades of interest in Afro-Cuban jazz, Jane has spent the last few years passionately advocating for Cuba’s superb female musicians – women who are often overlooked in the machismo of contemporary Cuban society. And so was formed Maqueque – the phenomenal all-female band that includes Mary Paz on congas, percussion, vocals; Dánae Olano on Steinway Concert Grand Piano, vocals; Yissy Garcia on Drums; Joanna Majoko on vocals, percussion and Tailin Marrero, on bass and vocals. This band delivers adept vocals and pulsating Afro-Cuban rhythms.

Despite an exhausting North American and European touring schedule, Jane Bunnett & Maqueque share their talents in our intimate and historic setting. But seating is limited at the Almonte Old Town Hall (just 20 mins from the CTC), and going fast … so please don’t wait.
