Wreckhouse International Jazz and Blues Festival

Location: St. John's, NL

The Wreckhouse International Jazz and Blues Festival recently wrapped up its thirteenth instalment which featured local, national, and international talents. Headliners Holly Cole and Matt Anderson were supported by dozens of blues, jazz, and world music performances at venues throughout St. John’s. Many local musicians were highlighted in shows, at workshops, and in a songwriters circle. We spoke with a Wreckhouse board member to hear how it all went.
