For local musicians, the Sasktel Saskatchewan Jazz Festival is exciting, hectic and unpredictable. Barrie Redford has been part of that scene since the festival’s beginning. Redford has played with local ensembles and filled in for international acts. After years of dedication and performance at the festival, Redford is being awarded the 2016 Special Recognition Award. He tells us what the 10-day music party is like for the performers.
