The Sioux Falls Jazz and Blues Society has announced the main stage lineup for this summer's 25th annual JazzFest. The free music festival on July 14-16 features local and national acts on two stages at Yankton Trail Park. Guitarist Tab Benoit headlines Thursday night, followed by The Fray on Friday and pianist Bruce Hornsby and the Noisemakers on Saturday.
Other artists include the Kenny Wayne Shepherd Band, singer/songwriter Andra Day, guitarist/singer Coco Montoya and Chubby Carrier and the Bayou Swamp Band. The JAS Quintet from Sioux Falls also takes the main stage with Twin Cities vocalist Debbie Duncan.
“This year we looked at bringing some past JazzFest performers back to our stage for a special encore, as well as look to new bands and new music," executive director Rob Joyce says. He joined Jazz Nightly and discussed the 25th annual JazzFest and this Saturday's 10th annual Jazz Crawl.
