Adrian Harewood, the popular Ottawa CBC personality and co-host of the CBC News Ottawa, will emcee JazzNhouse’s Season Finale Concert on June 16, 2018, 8:00 p.m. at the Almonte Old Town Hall.
Mr. Harewood attended elementary and high school at Ashbury College, and was involved in community radio at CKCU (Carleton University) and CHUO (University of Ottawa). He has been a guest host on national CBC programs such as As it Happens, Sounds Like Canada and The Current. Before coming to television, Harewood was the host of All In A Day on CBC Radio One in Ottawa.
JazzN.ca founder Arnie Francis told the Millstone: “Adrian was our first and only choice to emcee this special evening! He enjoys jazz, is community-minded, and his warm sincere style instantly engages audiences.”
Mr. Harewood will meet the artists before the show, including pianist Jon Ballantyne, bassist Jim Vivian, saxophonist Rémi Bolduc and drummer Alan Jones. Doors open at 7:00 pm and for those who arrive early there will also be an opportunity to meet Mr. Harewood, while enjoying the J.S. McCrae S.S. jazz quartet, The New Sounds.
