The 2018 edition of Merrickville's Jazz Fest closed Sunday with a powerful performance by Ottawa vocalist Kellylee Evans. Supported by three Toronto musicians, Evans both exhorted and entertained her audience with personal stories and uplifting music which combined soul, pop, and jazz.

It was part dancefest, part revival meeting, and a consistently joyful and stirring show.

Watch for our full review this week.
