Bremen expo Jazzahead will feature Erin Costelo on the opening evening with Laila Biali and Malika Tirolien appearing in the gala evening programme. Costelo from Nova Scotia is to play the Theater am Goetheplatz and has during her career toured with Dr John and Boz Scaggs.
Host country for 2022 after prolonged delays for Covid is Canada. Biali is no stranger to Jazzahead having appeared at the expo five years ago while the much lesser-known internationally Malika Tirolien from Guadeloupe based in Montreal has collaborated with both Snarky Puppy and the Metropole Orkest. Jazzahead dates are Thursday 14 April to Sunday 1 May 2022. Clubnight is on 30 April. Tickets for the opening concert and gala are available here
