About Jamie McLean Band (headliner):
Jamie McLean Band is a triple threat. The group’s energetic and captivating live show is undeniable. McLean’s fiery guitar has joined the ranks of Derek Trucks, Gregg Allman, Aaron Neville, Dr.John and more on stages from Madison Square Garden to Japan’s Fuji Rock. His blue-eyed southern soul vocals ooze real emotion. And his top line songwriting chops have crafted profound, honest and heartfelt songs that will keep you singing along, dancing along and feeling like the song was written about you. Jamie McLean Band creates a musical gumbo that incorporates New Orleans soul, middle Americana roots, Delta blues and New York City swagger.
Starting the evening will be Huslte Souls opening the show.

3nd Annual Music Festival – “Live – In Person Concert”

3nd Annual Music Festival – “Live – In Person Concert”

“This program is guaranteed to be the most innovative and creative performances that will totally inspire you and promises to be the most fascinating musical program to date”. “This is a jazz style program that classical musicians will thoroughly enjoy and everyone else will truly love”, Said Joann Freeburg, Founder of the Music Foundation of WNC.

Christopher Tavernier wrote, “what’s interesting with this program, despite being very different styles of music, all of the pieces are very rhythmically driven and stylized. Within that though you have very different genres of course with the latinesque melodies of the Marquez and the D’Rivera and the bombastic brassy textures of the Gershwin and the intricate layering of Bernstein. It’s very difficult to provide the range of those extremities with just a piano and clarinet but that’s what makes this program challenging for us and engaging for the audience”.

Our inspiration was to have a program centered around surveying a variety of music of the 20th century with a strong focus on the Americas with a very wide diversity, from the very popular to the unheard of. We wanted to put together something playful and delightful for what will probably be a first concert for many in a while, and it doesn’t get much better than a mix of Latin and Jazz and a little in-between.

The finale of the festival is the 2nd Suite of the late French jazz pianist and composer, Claude Bolling. This fifty-minute, eight-segment jazz excursion is written for a quartet of flute, piano, string bass, and drums.
