Syracuse Jazz Festival 2012

Jun 22 - Jun 23, 2012

"The Northeast's Largest Free (Admission) Jazz Festival" turns 30 this June, with another eclectic Syracuse-style lineup that features a combination of seasoned veterans, household names and some of jazz's most intriguing rising stars and hottest newcomers. This year's festival, the 30th under the helm of festival founder and former JazzTimes staffer Frank Malfitano, has a decidedly international flavor this time around, with artists from France (Cyrille Aimee), Brazil (Diego Figueiredo) Austria (Harri Stojka's Hot Club of Vienna), and Scotland (Iconic Folk-Jazz Legend Donovan). The USA will also be well represented on the festival's main stage by original Allman Brothers' percussionist Jaimoe and his Jasssz Band, Grammy-nominated vocalist Gregory Porter, five-time SXSW and Austin Music Award winners, Mingo Fishtrap, and Smooth jazz legend Kenny G.
