2014 Saturday Evening Headliner

2014 Saturday Evening Headliner
Concord Recording Artist Karrin Allyson
8:00 PM - 10:00 PM - Main Stage
The New York Times calls this four time Grammy nominee a “singer with a feline touch and impeccable intonation” and “one of the jazz world’s greatest”. The songs she will perform for you from the main stage are drawn from a variety of genres, including bossa nova, blues, bebop, samba, jazz and pop standards, the Great American Songbook and soft rock. The Washington called her music “the stuff that shivers are made of, both innocent, sexy and world weary”. In short…she is sure to captivate those jazz purists in the audience as well as those who just love to hear great music on a soft summer night. Not to be missed.

About the Music

About the Music

The Lewiston Jazz Festival offers a wide variety of jazz styles. Our "rising stars" of the twenty to thirty something age group, will grab you with their emerging interpretations of this musical genre. Our more seasoned musicians will perform jazz tunes that span six decades of straight on-jazz, latin jazz or pop-infused favorites. In between we have solos, trios and big bands. It's all about jazz here but there's enough of a variety to make you want to see every single performance.
