The 38th edition of the Festival International de Jazz de Montréal has announced 10 new concerts to be included in the festival’s upcoming summer lineup. These events will take place at a half-dozen venues throughout the span of the festival, which runs June 28 through July 8.

On June 30, the Place des Arts’ Salle Wilfrid-Pelletier, Québec’s largest performance hall, hosts a blues summit featuring guitarist-vocalist Buddy Guy, harmonica player Charlie Musselwhite and vocalist/multi-instrumentalist Lucky Peterson. Then, on July 8, the Salle presents the retro cocktail-jazz sound of Pink Martini. Both these events are part of the festival’s Événements spéciaux TD series.
