Diana Braithwaite is an award-winning vocalist who has made blues and jazz her passion. As one of the very few Black blues artists performing in Canada, she makes a point of reaching out to share the history and beauty of music along with her partner, nine-time Maple Blues Award winner Chris Whiteley.

Chris is a legendary multi-instrumentalist on the blues scene who started out 50 years ago and has worked with many of the greats along the way – Blind John Davis, Leon Redbone and Chuck Berry, to name a few.

Together they are a force to be reckoned with in the blues and jazz genres. For this engagement, they will appear as a quintet.

Brilliant lineup for 2021!

Mark your calendars for August 20– 22 and plan to tune in from wherever you are. The 24th edition of the TD Markham Jazz Festival is going to be fantastic!
