September 2013: See our story on the full 2013-14 NAC Presents lineup.
NAC Presents, the National Arts Centre's showcase for Canadian musicians, will be bringing back Ottawa singer Kellylee Evans in its 2013-14 series – but that's the only jazz in that series so far.
Evans will be playing the NAC Studio (300 seats) on Wednesday, December 18. She appeared in this year's season of NAC Presents on April 20 at the 180-seat NAC Fourth Stage. That show sold out weeks in advance.
The NAC announced the Evans concert May 8, as part of an initial announcement of the fall section of its season.The remaining artists announced ranged from rock to folk to indie to country. There were no other jazz artists. In 2012-13, the NAC Presents lineup included eight jazz artists, including three in the fall; in 2011-12, there were five jazz artists, including two in the fall, plus the Geggie series.
Tickets for the shows announced today go on sale on Tuesday, May 14 at 10 a.m.
The full 2013-14 NAC Presents lineup will be revealed September 24.
