Edgefest, at the Kerrytown Concert House

 

“…a blending of improvisational-avant jazz with the composers’ own artistic and cultural roots…”

I had the pleasure of working with a few very talented and unique groups this weekend at Ann Arbor’s Edgefest, held at the small but well used, Kerrytown Concert House. I worked the first and last days of the festival which contained performances from the Baars-Henneman Duo (Amsterdam), Jason Kao Hwang’s Edge Quartet, Wadada Leo Smith (performing an hour long version of Ten Freedom Summers)*, and Jaribu Shahid.

 

 

Also met a nice woman nicknamed Grandma Techno, who has photo-documented past Edge Festivals and will most likely be posting this years soon.
