This year’s launch will showcase acclaimed musicians, stimulating literary events, and not-to-be-missed reminiscences by George Ryga's colleagues and friends. The headliner is none other than international jazz sensation Campbell Ryga, Grammy nominee, Juno Award-winner and the eldest of George's sons. Read on for all of the details.
