Add to my List

Celebrating Juneteenth with a jazz jubilee, the Festival brings a talent-packed triple bill to the Plaza headlined by trombone master Steve Turre, this year’s artist in residence.

Instantly recognizable from his almost four-decade tenure in the Saturday Night Live band, Turre gained early attention performing and recording with reed legend Rahsaan Roland Kirk and trumpet great Woody Shaw before earning renown as a prolific bandleader (and pioneer of the conch shells in jazz).

The Juneteenth program also features Person2Person, a quintet co-led by tenor sax titan Houston Person and his younger colleague, fiery altoist Eric Person, and pianist Darrell Grant and the MJ New, a band that honors and extends the elegant legacy of the Modern Jazz Quartet. With three stellar bands, the Juneteenth program exemplifies the power of music as a liberational force.

Educational Area designated in the Healdsburg Plaza during the annual Juneteenth Celebration as part of the festival.

Includes: posters on the history of Juneteenth, activities for children and families and percussion workshops led throughout the day.
