Live from the Alt Hotel is a series of six performances recorded live from downtown’s stylish Alt Hotel Winnipeg. These free online concerts aim to stretch the boundaries of jazz and turn up the volume on genres like funk, soul, blues, hip-hop, and global beats. Concerts premiere on Jazz Winnipeg’s Facebook page each Thursday at 8 pm and are free, and donations are strongly encouraged.
Born and raised in Winnipeg, Curtis Newton is one of the brightest stars on the Canadian blues, boogie and swing scene. He is a soft-spoken, almost shy young man except when he has a guitar in his hands. His style goes from the fiercely ferocious to sweetly subtle and his sound comes straight from the heart.
