Alison Young at the Local Gest

Sunday Jazz: June 29, 4:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

A relatively new force to reckon with in the Toronto music scene, Alison is from Ottawa where she honed her craft playing in local blues and R&B bands. After studying at the University of Toronto with Canadian sax greats Mike Murley and Kirk MacDonald, Alison has emerged as one of the Toronto music scene’s hottest and most sought after reed players. Alison plays all kinds of music and has toured Canada with pop group Kelly and the Kellygirls and with the one and only Big Rude Jake!
