Come celebrate “one of the best jazz festivals in the nation” (Hartford Courant) by adding your name to the top businesses who stand behind The Litchfield Jazz Festival. “Standing tall” (Wall Street Journal) for the best part of two decades, thanks in part to your role as an Advertising Sponsor, Litchfield Jazz Festival makes its 18th appearance at the Goshen Fairgrounds, August 9 – 11.
Our Opening Night’s Star is the Tony Award Winning (42nd Street and Grey Gardens) Singer/Actress Christine Ebersole with the Aaron Weinstein Trio. Opening for Ms. Ebersole is former Jazz Camper and recent Monk piano awardee, Pianist Emmet Cohen, with and Evan Sherman (another LJC alum) on drums.
In our bringing you the “hottest tickets” tradition, we present DownBeat’s Best New Artist of the Year vocalist Gregory Porter and the stunning young pianist Orrin Evans. As always, the lineup is stellar, and it includes a couple of surprises -- Gospel with legendary bassist Avery Sharpe and the Williams College Gospel Choir and Flamenco jazz with guitar virtuoso Val Ramos Ensemble. The roster features dozens more great jazzers - Harold Mabern, Eric Alexander, Vincent Herring, Geri Allen, our own sax dynamos Don Braden, Gary Smulyan, and Claire Daly, Tributes to Chet Baker and to Coltrane and Cannonball, the newest NEA Jazz Master, Eddie Palmieri with his Latin Jazz Band and the Papo Vázquez Mighty Pirates Troubadours who’ll wrap it all up.
Our audience is the audience you want to reach. They have taste, are highly educated and have the time and the money to spend on your products and services (53% make $100 - $200++). They are looking for weekend homes, financial managers, craftsmen, great dining, luxury cars, top colleges and more. Your ad in our Program Book will reach 50,000 households through our pre-fest tab in the Rep-Am papers plus all Festival attendees.
