There are a couple of Ziners planning trips to Vancouver this Summer
and I know that John was asking about music.
If Jazz is to your liking, I can confirm that the Jazz Festival runs
this year from June 21st to July 1st and this should be a
particularly festive time in the City.
As well as Big Name concerts in various venues, there will be free
events including a street festival in Gastown June 21st and 22nd, a 2
day closing event in False creek and daily outdoor performances at
the art gallery. Just in case you're interested,last year we went to
an amazing performance of the Buena Vista Social Club from Cuba held
at the beautiful Orpheum theatre. This was an evening to remember,
the group had the very middle aged crowd dancing in the aisles! I
believe there may be a repeat performance this year.
