Due to popular demand, DJ Shadow and Cut Chemist‘s vinyl-only Renegades of Rhythm tour is continuing throughout November and expanding into new markets, including Winnipeg on Thursday, November 20 at the Garrick Centre.

These two world-renowned artists and turntablists are spinning the well-loved and well-worn vinyl from the record collection of the founding father of hip-hop and “Master of Records,” Afrika Bambaataa.

Shadow and Cut kicked off the tour with two sold-out shows at NYC’s Irving Plaza where Bambaataa himself watched from the balcony as the duo pulled his vinyl collection apart and mixed a nostalgic set that chronicled and honoured the genre that influenced so many others.

We are absolutely thrilled to have 2014 Grammy Award-winner Gregory Porter, arguably the hottest name in jazz right now, making his Winnipeg debut at this year’s festival.

Speaking of festival debuts, Porter made his first-ever appearance at the legendary New Orleans Jazz Festival last night. His performance was described as “a comprehensive demonstration of the art of jazz singing.” The review also said “His voice is rich and round and regal, authentically emotional without ever wallowing in pathos. Confidence can be an elusive quality. Porter has plenty.”
