The Litchfield Jazz Festival will celebrate its 18th season at the Goshen Fairgrounds Aug. 9-11. After a three-year stint at the Kent School, the festival returned to its roots last summer and got its grove back.

A stellar lineup includes both seasoned and emerging artists.  Opening the show: Emmet Cohen, the 22-year-old pianist and Litchfield Jazz Camp alum who recently placed third in the Thelonius Monk Piano Competition.  After that featured headliner Strings Attached - an unlikely collaboration between jazz violinist Aaron Weinstein and his trio and Broadway diva Christine Ebersole - takes over.
