Durand Bernarr

Waterfront Park /// FREE

The City of Burlington's Great Streets initiative is ongoing. Visit the city's website for information about Main Street construction and detours. Please allow extra time to get to the show.


With a sound that has been coined as "gangster musical theatre" by Qveen Herby, Durand Bernarr is one-part Little Richard, one-part Rick James, plus a heavy dash of powerhouse vocals and witty lyrical storytelling. The result is uniquely Durand—your favorite singer’s favorite singer! Durand has had the opportunity to sit under, collaborate, and learn from some of music’s leading legends and contributors, such as Earth, Wind & Fire, Producer Yonni (his first cousin on his father’s side), The Internet, Anderson. Paak, Sam Sparro, J*DaVeY, Teedra Moses, Adam Blackstone, Tweet, comedian Rickey Smiley, and Erykah Badu. In 2020, Durand made huge waves with his album DUR&, which debuted at the #1 spot on the Apple Music R&B charts and features collaborations with the likes of Ari Lennox, KAYTRANADA, Anna Wise, and bassist “Buddah” Foster Jr.


We're thrilled to offer free jazz programming for the entire festival, so that everyone has the opportunity to experience this music. Please support us if you can.
