For nine days jazz fans from all over take over the town of Healdsburg in the Sonoma County wine region. Healdburg Jazz Fesival mixes great jazz with the food and atmosphere of the small town life of Healdburg. Concert venues take place downtown and on the grounds of several local vineyards. It is a great way to spend a week in Sonoma wine country.
The festival opens with the Julian Lage Trio and two concerts honoring drummer Billy Hart. Sunday is the blue brunch at Sonoma Cutrer Vinyard with Lady Bianca. Music continues every night of the week and finshes with the Marcus Shelby orchestra with Beyond the Blues and New Orleans on the Green.
KCSM is proud to be a media sponsor of the Healdsburg Jazz Festival. Festival details are on their web site at http://www.healdsburgjazzfestival.org/category/2016-festival/.
