Journey in Jazz Film at Museum

August 22, 2018

Join filmmaker James Cullingham at the South Grey Museum on August 22nd as he shows his documentary film, A Journey in Jazz. This film delves into the life of Scots-Canadian Jim Galloway (1936–2014). This musician, impresario and journalist was originally from Dalry, outside Glasgow. He became Canada’s ambassador of jazz and co-founded the Toronto Jazz Festival. His saga is an immigrant’s tale of an international career launched from his adopted home. It is also a story about the global transmission of  jazz, America’s greatest gift to the world. Galloway studied at Glasgow College of Art and emigrated to Toronto in 1964. He was known internationally as a wondrous saxophonist, collaborating with such stalwarts as Buddy Tate and Jay McShann. Event is at 7 p.m. Admission is $7 per person and $5 for museum members.
