Artist Talks


Each summer The Litchfield Jazz Festival offers clinics and artist talks by Festival stars. This year these special events will be hosted by DownBeat Publisher, Frank Alkyer and held on the grounds of the Litchfield Jazz Festival at the Student Stage Tent.

Did you ever wonder what went into learning an instrument, composing the music you love listening to, or what inspired your favorite musicians to perform? Well, now is your chance to find out.

All are welcome - musicians and music lovers alike - to enjoy these open format clinics and artist talks. Festival stars will talk about their experiences, demonstrate and, if they choose, invite some students (young and old) to play with them. Artist Talks are held between Mainstage acts and are open to Festival ticket holders and Litchfield Jazz Campers free of charge.
