Tim Hortons Southside Shuffle Blues & Jazz Fest, Sept. 8-11, 2022

Description

“If our fans can’t come to us this September, then we’ll go to them” announced Kris Kane, Chair of the Tim Hortons Southside Shuffle Blues & Jazz Festival recently. “COVID-19 has affected many live events which would normally happen this time of the year and Port Credit’s lively music scene has certainly felt the pandemic’s rage” Kane added. “Our team was determined that a hiatus for our 22nd anniversary was not an option and a virtual festival was the best alternative to keep our dedicated fans “Shuffling-On” in 2020”.

The event will take place over 4 days in September, (10th-13th) streaming on You Tube, Facebook and other social media platforms. Each day will feature a 90-minute production. All performances will be filmed at Mississauga’s Metalworks Studios using professional camera and editing crews to ensure the quality and continuity of each performance and social distancing will be strictly observed throughout the paid recording sessions.

Chuck Jackson, Artistic Director for the Southside Shuffle announced an outstanding line-up for the event which includes the Legendary Downchild Blues Band, Juno nominees- Durham County Poets, Lance Anderson’s “Everyday People” The Music of Sly and the Family Stone and the Mark LaForme Band. Ladies Sing The Blues will feature Finnish Blues sensation, Erja Lyytinen also, A Tribute to Etta James, Miss Emily, and “Tapestry” The Carole King Songbook plus interviews and a segment on the history of the Shuffle & Port Credit.
The Sunday show will feature the Induction ceremony of the newest member of Port Credit’s Music Walk of Fame and a retrospective on previous inductees including Oscar Peterson.
