Music fans have some new music to look forward to this year. Jazz Winnipeg has unveiled details for the latest edition of its innotivative NuSounds Series, which gives homegrown talent the unique opportunity to explore new, risky ideas, and connect with new fans. The Good Will Social Club is set to host the four-concert series. 

Dirty Catfish Brass Band leader Todd Martin kicks off this year's series with the Winnipeg premiere of Gruber's Frankenstein!! on October 28

Bilingual electro-soul artist Rayannah returns from her fall tour on November 25 with a special multidisciplinary performance. She'll be joined on stage by contemporary dancers Emily Solstice Tait and Jillian Groening, along with Saskatoon-based projection artist Stephanie Kuse, who will transform the space with dreamy live visuals. 

On January 27, woodwind specialist Sean Irvine and synesthesia artist Alexandra Hashpenlung will team up to provide a collaborative, immersive artistic experience inspired by music from around the world. 

Erin Propp and Yuri Hooker will be closing out this season of NuSounds on March 3. Wanting to explore each other's musical worlds, Propp and Hooker became fast friends and schemed several ways to unite their respective crafts. Hooker's cello wizardry and Propp's singular voice have blended their symphonic and jazz backgrounds to create a new concert of inspired repertoire.

Tickets for NuSounds are now on sale and you can find all the shows in our free MB Live app and online listings.
