From August 22nd to 24th, Niagara-on-the-Lake is playing host to the first ever Niagara Jazz Festival. As part of the festival, an outdoor free-viewing stage will be held at TheVillage on August 23rd from 11am to 7:30pm. It is there that Port Colborne's own Ashley Kennedy will be performing with Jazz band member Reinhard Fochtberger as Duo Nuevo. The duo is being featured in this year's "New Artist" slot from 12:15 to 1pm with Ashley on Jazz vocals and flute, and Reinhard on piano. Their shared passion for musical performance, and Jazz in particular, led them to take on this new venture together landing them in this prestigious festival of great Jazz artists.
