Boomtown Festival schedule corrected and updated. The 2013 jazz festival season is getting into high gear as we head into mid-July. Here are some additions to the summer schedule as well as further details about previously announced events.
Bar Harbor Jazz Festival
[Updated June 21] Memorial Day weekend marks the unofficial start to summer. Beaches reopen, and the jazz festival season follows close on their heels. Indeed, the first major festival kicks off this Friday, before June has even begun.
The tents and stages have come down in Newport, and now the action shifts west to Connecticut, home of the superb Litchfield Jazz Festival. Later in the month, it’s party time in Salem, MA with Jaimoe’s Jasssz Band and the Dirty Dozen Brass Band.
