jazz, get ready for it

This week I had the pleasure of talking on VPR’s Vermont Edition about some of the special events happening at this year’s Burlington Discover Jazz Festival.

The Festival ‘unofficially’ kicks off tomorrow night with the traditional first night reception. Then – we’re off. For the next ten days after that all of downtown will be jammed and jamming in formal and very informal ways. Street musicians and sit-down concerts, international headliners and talented locals are all part of the mix along with the usual dose of the completely unexpected. Here’s the schedule…but keep in mind, this is only part of the story. You just have to come and experience the rest of it yourself.

Over at The Radiator 105.9FM we’re also giving away tickets to lots of the Jazz Festival shows including on my own World of Music this coming Monday, from 3-5pm. Can’t wait to set some lucky folks up with seats to Poncho Sanchez and the Roy Hargrove/Roberta Gambarini shows!

Keep an eye out here for regular updates through the festival.

This is gonna be funnnnn.
