EP 86: Molly Johnson & The Kensington Market Jazz Festival


Attention all music lovers! Canadian Jazz Legend Molly Johnson has been hard at work with her incredible team to make this years Kensington Jazz Festival the best one yet. Going into their third year this extra special music festival keeps growing stronger with a whopping 300+ musicians bringing their talents to one of Toronto’s greatest neighbourhoods.

Three days, one hundred and Fifty performances, this festival is born from music lovers FOR music lovers. You won’t find any advanced tickets here, Molly wants you to come down, roam around, find what speaks to your soul and enjoy live music the way it’s meant to be, as a shared experience.

We had the great pleasure of talking with Molly not only about the festival but Molly’s latest album Meaning to Tell Ya, her thoughts and observations on how the music industry have shifted over the past few decades and the importance of valuing ourselves as girls and women, as we are and as we age. It was such a pleasure to talk with Molly and we cannot wait to continue the conversation in the future!
