Salem Jazz and Soul Festival

Salem Jazz and Soul Festival

The Salem Jazz and Soul Festival is recreating and renewing the vibrant jazz scene that began at the Salem Willows in the 1920s, when Duke Ellington and other musicians from the Big Band era played at the seaside park in Massachusetts. The festival builds on this rich jazz history — adding soul, blues and funk to the mix — by offering a series of annual free concerts to the public, concluding with a festival each year at the Salem Willows. The festival spotlights the wealth of talented musicians on Boston’s North Shore, and has already attracted thousands of music fans and extensive media coverage during its first four years of operation.
