In September, 1914, the New Orleans Creole Orchestra played Winnipeg’s Pantages Playhouse Theatre for their first international concert, bringing with them a new type of music from their hometown: Jazz. Musical Ghosts uses this moment as a launching point, exploring the people and places of Winnipeg's Jazz scene from 1914 - 1966.
Based on the book by Winnipeg author and musician Owen Clark and featuring a performance by The George Reznik Trio.
