TD Winnipeg International Jazz Festival shows scheduled for the Aqua Books new location on Princess Street have had to be relocated.
Tonight’s Small Girl show, 9 p.m., has been moved to the Exchange Community Church, 200-75 Albert St., says festival executive producer Paul Nolin.
Tuesday to Thursday shows — Doug Edmond Band, Presslaff/Bonness keyboard duo and Donato-Bourassa-Lozano-Tanguay Play Bill Evans, respectively, all 9 p.m. — will be at the Rachel Browne Theatre in the Crocus Building, 211 Bannatyne Ave. Saturday’s Vijay Iyer Trio shows, 8:30 p.m. and 10:30 p.m., will move to the Park Theatre, 698 Osborne St. Iyer’s scheduled jazz lab workshop on Saturday is cancelled. All tickets will be honoured at the new locations.
Aqua Books is in the midst of moving from 274 Garry Street to 123 Princess and Nolin said owner Kelly Hughes assured him the location would be ready to host the jazz shows, but it was clear this morning that it wasn’t.
