What is it?
Jazz at The Bolt is not just a music festival; it’s an immersive celebration that harmonizes the cultural richness of Burnaby with the soulful notes of jazz. Now in its 4th year, this annual extravaganza has firmly established itself as a cherished local gem at Shadbolt Centre for the Arts. Founded by the passionate jazz enthusiast, Cory Weeds, the festival transcends the boundaries of a typical music event, embracing diversity, community spirit, and, of course, the incredible world of jazz.
The Origins of Jazz at The Bolt
Cory Weeds, through his extensive involvement in the jazz world, has cultivated connections with musicians from around the globe, notably from the jazz mecca, New York City. This year’s lineup boasts a fusion of talent from the Big Apple, Houston, Phoenix, Toronto, and Vancouver’s own pool of emerging and seasoned artists. Weeds is excited to collaborate once again with Tim Reinert and Infidels Jazz, bringing diverse programming to the forefront of the festival.
With multiple stages to choose from, Jazz at The Bolt offers a unique opportunity for music enthusiasts to immerse themselves in a vibrant and welcoming music community. Here, the joy of spending time with old and new friends is as integral to the festival experience as the music itself.
