The Salem Jazz and Soul Fest
Every summer for the past 9 summers
the Salem Jazz and Soul Festival comes to town
My brother was one of the founders of this wonderful event!
Musicians from all over the country
come to play on the stage at the beautiful Salem Willows
The entire weekend is open and free to the public.
Donations are encouraged and there are all kinds of fantastic vendors
In addition to the main event in August, there are smaller concerts around Salem
through out the summer.
All proceeds go to the Salem public school music education department.
Each year the SJSF gives thousands of dollars back into the music community
and puts on great shows at no charge to the public!
Salem Willows is a park that sits on the edge of the Atlantic ocean
you can see the beautiful sailboats and feel the sweet ocean breeze all afternoon
working on the day of the festival
looks like fun.ReplyDelete
Definitely sounds like fun!ReplyDelete
I'll have to check that out next summer!ReplyDelete
Looks like a fun event, nice photos!ReplyDelete
That does sound like fun. There is a big music festival here but it is not free and when you add up tickets with the cost of parking, it gets very expensive. Wonderful view in your second shot.ReplyDelete
That is wonderful to have a community that jumps in and helps.ReplyDelete
Summer festivals are the best part of the season, methinks. Been out of the loop for days without cell or wifi in our lovely Lake Michigan cottage in Door County, Wi. Wish I could live here again!ReplyDelete
Right now briefly visiting a coffee shop to use cell and pick up messages. Will visit again soon! Still posting automatically, tho!
Great shots. The ocean view looks gorgeous.
Have a great day!
So cool!!! Hope I remember about this for next year!ReplyDelete
Oh, just too fun! What a great legacy your brother is crafting!ReplyDelete
Where I used to live before they had a Jazz festival for a week in the park - now we have moved I have to find if they have one in Sacramento - it's so much fun :)ReplyDelete
Your brother is doing well.ReplyDelete
Good to hear about the fun group.
Loads of blessings
Sounds wonderful...it's hot and muggy here and I pretended for a moment that I was feeling that fresh ocean air :)ReplyDelete
That's a wonderful event. A very nice way to raise money for public school music.ReplyDelete
