‘Jazz in the Vine’ showcases top musical talent alongside spectacular wines from Langley’s Campbell Valley
Few of the finer things in life complement each other as beautifully as wine and jazz. In fact, there are events and festivals celebrating this uniquely magical pairing around the globe — from Toronto and Manhattan to Southern California and Southern France.
New this year, the Fort Langley Jazz & Arts Festival proudly brings this tradition to Langley with the premiere edition of a new concert series: Jazz in the Vine.
Once a month, from March to June, a Campbell Valley winery will host a special ticketed concert featuring top jazz talent alongside exceptional food and hospitality — and, of course, incredible wines from this growing region.
Jazz in the Vine: 2020 Schedule
Thursday, March 19: Kenny “Blues Boss” Wayne at Glass House Estate Winery Thursday, April 16: Blue Moon Marquee at Glass House Estate Winery Thursday, May 21: Cousin Harley at Vista D’oro Farms & Winery
Thursday, June 18: Mazacote at Township 7 Vineyards & Winery
The first two concerts will be held indoors while the last two concerts in the series will be held outdoors. These concerts will also serve as a sneak preview of the 2020 Fort Langley Jazz & Arts Festival (July 24 – 26), as each of the artists will be performing at the summer festival.
“Jazz in the Vine is a fantastic addition to our jazz programming in the Fraser Valley — and to live music here in general,” says Dave Quinn, Artistic Director of the Fort Langley Jazz & Arts Festival. “Local residents and visitors are going to love these new opportunities to see and hear tremendous musical talent right here in our own backyard.”
Adds Erinn Kredba, Executive Director of Tourism Langley: “Live music is a crucial component of the cultural activity in any city or region. The Fort Langley Jazz & Arts Festival has been a rousing success since it launched in 2018, and these new events will help to extend the excitement its brought to the area throughout the year.”
Tickets for each Jazz in the Vine concert are $35 (plus service charge and GST) and are available for purchase at jazz-in-the-vine.eventbrite.ca.
