Festival Description

The inaugural edition of the Simply Jazz and Blues Festival will take place in 2013. I have been hosting my radio show, “Simply Jazz and Blues” and have found that the jazz and blues audience is alive and well in southern West Virginia. Audiences have just never had access to live performances right here in this area on a regular basis. Now with the success of the show and the opening of 110 Marshall; jazz and blues has a true home in the hills of WV.

We want to invite you music lovers from everywhere to visit us here in Wild, Wonderful West Virginia and enjoy our own jazz and blues talent as well as performers from around the country! This is a “rain or shine” event! Bring lawn chairs. No coolers or containers. No animals, pets except “service dogs” allowed. No weapons, drugs or alcohol may be brought onto the grounds. Festival goers are asked to follow the rules of “good conduct.” Anyone being disruptive or threatening to other visitors will escorted off the property.

Festival Dates August 23 - 25, 2013
