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. Click here for schedule of performers
