2013 Newport Jazz Festival Is Set

Tickets are now on sale on the festival’s website.


Published:

While the chill in the air may be coming back to winter, already we can look forward to the warmth of August in Newport. The 2013 Newport Jazz Festival is set to take place August 2-4. The legendary festival looks to match the great line-ups of the previous fifty-eight years – where luminaries of this great American art form share the bill (and sometimes the stage) with the future luminaries. The Friday kick-off at the International Tennis Hall of Fame will feature Natalie Cole. The festival will then move to Fort Adams for the weekend, with highlights including an all-star eightieth birthday celebration for Wayne Shorter, and appearances by Joshua Redman, Roy Haynes and Esperanza Spalding. The Newport Jazz Festival is, without a doubt, one of the great treasures of Rhode Island, truly part of our state’s history. This is one not to be missed. Tickets are now on sale.
