2019 TD Markham Jazz Festival announces spectacular Sunday performances headlined by Brandi Disterheft.
Sunday, August 18 brings another incredible day of jazz performances of all genres by our magnificent roster of professional musicians, with a festival-closing show featuring bassist and singer Brandi Disterheft. All outdoor stage performances are free!
Bassist, singer, composer Brandi Disterheft has been under the apprenticeship of Miles Davis’s bassist, Ron Carter, since she relocated to NYC from Vancouver. It’s not only her fiery bass playing, it’s also her innovative live shows as she sings in both English and French, showcasing her ambient, dreamy voice. Winning a JUNO for her “Debut” album, Brandi has performed with Benny Green, Cyrus Chestnut, Jeremy Pelt and Renee Rosnes to name a few. Brandi is a Canadian staple of the NYC jazz scene.
