I will be a vendor at the MidAtlantic Jazz festival again this year. The festival is a showcase for the Washington DC areas finest high school jazz bands, emerging and established artists, as well as touring international musicians.
Here is a partial lineup, Branford Marsalis Quartet, Detriot’s own Regina Carter, Bryan Lynch, Sean Jones, Charles McPherson, Jazz Messenger Legacy Band, featuring Geoffrey Keezer, Frank Lacy, and Ralph Peterson.
(see the complete lineup on the MidAtlantic Jazz Festival website.)
What I like most about this festival is the enthusiasm of the musicians, there is a mix of older and younger musicians and the crowd feeds off their energy.
My vendor area is in the hallway by one of the main performing stages.
My jazz mosaics fit in very nicely in this true jazz setting. This year I will be showing my new Sonny Rollins and Art Blakey mosaics along with my other mosaics and prints.
