Music can soothe one’s fiery temper, propel a rousing dance, or distract a roommate long enough so you can sell his television at a pawnshop. Experience the stunning power of sound with today's GrouponLive deal: for $10, you get one adult day pass to the All-Canadian Jazz Festival, occurring September 23–25 in Port Hope (a $20 value). This pass is valid for admission to all daytime events on either Saturday, September 24, or Sunday, September 25 (admission is free on Friday, September 23). Saturday evening’s concert must be purchased separately.
The All-Canadian Jazz Festival enthralls audiences with performances from notable Canadian jazz musicians and the Square Foot Art Show, an exhibit featuring the work of local visual artists. One adult day pass grants finger snappers access to a jazz-scat translation seminar and the chance to see talented troubadours tickle their instruments onstage. The lineup includes Quebec gypsy-jazz sensations The Lost Fingers, whose fusion of Django Reinhardt guitar-plucking techniques and 1980s pop sensibility results in soothing sounds, unlike the fusion of cat and bathtub water. The TD Canada Trust Young Jazz Showcase impresses concertgoers with the bewildering talents of past participants in a reunion performance.
