Edgefest 26: Breathing Free
October 20 @ 6:00 pm
Kerrytown Concert House is planning its 26th annual avant-garde jazz and creative new music festival, EDGEFEST 26: BREATHING FREE – a 4-day exploration of new music/improvisation composed and performed by artists – noteworthy for raising their voices and music in response to ongoing social-cultural issues and the day’s disturbing events; calling for justice. Events will take place in Ann Arbor and Detroit; recognizing the voices and contributions of that African American community. The Edgefest roster has always been diverse and inclusive and this year’s theme and resultant creative music amplify this commitment. Edgefest draws audiences from the upper Midwest with an increasing number from across the US and even Europe. The opening night will happen at the Trinosophes in Detroit, with many of Detroit’s free jazz greats performing, focusing on Detroit’s history in this music.
