2020 took a lot of things from us, and saw the music industry suffering a huge hit, with artists, events and beloved venues scrambling to find new and unique ways to connect with the world, especially at a time when it has been so easy to feel disconnected.

One such example: last year, and for the first time in more than 250 years, St. Patrick’s Day – a global cultural celebration of revelry and merriment – was cancelled all over the world, with 2021 sadly following suit again. Thankfully, Jameson Irish Whiskey are ensuring that the day will still be one of celebration and music, as the legendary distillery are partnering with long-time collaborator of the brand, Jessie Reyez, to host an intimate virtual gig.

Live-streamed via the Jameson Connects platform and into homes across the globe on Wednesday 17 March, the exclusive show will see the Grammy-nominated multi-instrumentalist perform tracks from her critically-acclaimed debut album – Before Love Came to Kill Us, as well as platforming a host of emerging talent from her native city Toronto, as well as Dublin, the home of St Patrick’s Day.

Fans will be transported on a virtual journey to both vibrant cities, spotlighting the heart of the hometowns and communities. Jameson hopes to underline the powerful message that while we’re all missing our loved ones, live music and connection, they hope this St Patrick’s Day can still offer a chance for friends all over the world to come together and celebrate with a little Irish spirit, no matter where they are – and remind ourselves that good times are coming.

In Toronto, viewers will enter the doors of The Great Hall – a much-loved local venue that has stood empty since its doors were forced to close last year due to the pandemic – and witness the talents of Junia-T and Savannah Ré in support slots, before Reyez takes to the stage with her band for the gig’s headline set. Then over in Dublin, performances will take place from Ireland’s most exciting up-and-coming disrupters: Kojaque and Denise Chaila.

Colombian-Canadian singer-songwriter Reyez has become a household name via her signature jazz-inflected vocals and soaring pop, with hits such as “Great One” and “Figures”, touring with the likes of Billie Eilish, recording with Eminem, with the artist even responsible for penning Dua Lipa’s mega-hit “One Kiss”.

Tickets to the gig are free, but fans will have the option to donate to a cause close to Jessie’s heart: Al Otro Lado is an organisation that provides legal and humanitarian support to indigent refugees, deportees, and other migrants in the US and Tijuana.

Sign up for the gig here. Gigs will be streamed globally on 17 March at 8PM (GMT, PDT, EDT, MYT) & 9PM (CET)
