The Hudson Valley Jazz Festival celebrates it’s 13th season Aug 18-21. The purpose of this series is to feature Hudson Valley NY jazz artists leading groups. Who they hire is up to them.  We may also feature others from time to time.

Performances take place  in different settings. Clubs, restaurants, non-profit organizations, town concert series, galleries, arts centers and others are often the venues. That’s where the concert is ( see listing below).   The presenting venues are the producers of those concerts with guidance and scheduling from the festival.   Get in touch.  email us.
