Bettye LaVette added to the TD Toronto Jazz Festival lineup

Thursday, June 27 – Nathan Phillips Square

TORONTO – Soul legend Bettye LaVette has just been added to the TD Toronto Jazz Festival lineup, replacing Sharon Jones due to health concerns. James Hunter Six will open.

With a career spanning 50 years that shows no signs of stopping, Bettye LaVette has done it all.  First introduced to the blues in her parents’ living room at the age of six, LaVette would go on to sign her first label deal with legendary Motor City Records at 16.

Despite a series of bumps in her career, including the debut album getting shelved, LaVette has become a seasoned and masterful performer.

 From a cult favourite in soul circles to unsung pioneer in R&B, soul music, LaVette’s emotionally charged lyrics and impeccable delivery have captivated audiences worldwide. With an unmistakable rasp to her voice, this powerhouse vocalist will deliver an unforgettable show that is not to be missed.

Tickets for the original performance will be honoured. Refunds are available until Thursday, June 27 at original point of purchase. 

Turn up the jazz and explore the TD Toronto Jazz Festival as it plays nonstop from June 20 - June 29, 2013. Uniting half a million fans at more than 40 locations across the city, the Festival is the ultimate destination for music lovers. Make the Festival your meeting place this summer and take in a breath of fresh jazz.
