“Jazz music is America’s past and its potential…It can remind us of where we fit on the time line of human achievement, an ultimate value of art.” — Wynton Marsalis

The Twin Cities Jazz Festival is probably one of the funnest and coolest events in the Twin Cities!    The festival is a non-profit 501 (c)(3) free out-door event open to all.   The main stage along with several outdoor stages are located in and around Mears Park in the Lowertown neighborhood of  downtown St. Paul, MN.  Over 20 St. Paul venues partner with the festival hosting jazz all weekend long.   As part of the festival mission, over 100 youth perform at the festival.   Our national headliners lead masterclasses/clinics to students that are free and open to all.

If you plan to attend one of our outdoor stages there’s lots of food vendors as well as great local craft beer selections and wine.  All jazz fest stages are accessible.

The Twin Cities Jazz Festival is funded by our generous corporate sponsors, grants and individual donations.

Meet The Author #1

Jim Autry is the former editor of Better Homes and Gardens and president of Meredith Corporation. He is the author of many best-selling books. Now, just before Father's Day, in their first father/son collaboration, Jim, and Rick Autry have released "Everyday Virtues: Classic Tales To Read With Kids," (Smyth&Helwys) a collection of stories gleaned from the world's folktale traditions. "This book is intended to give parents, grandparents, and other caregivers a valuable tool in luring kids, even for a short while, away from their digital obsessions," explained Rick. Jim added that he felt there was nothing more important for kids than to hear a story read by a trusted adult.

MACHINERY HILL

This Minneapolis-based band takes their name from the Minnesota State Fair’s display of farm equipment. Their original style blends American folk with unexpected touches of ska, klezmer, Celtic and a bit of rock & roll. If you look up “diverse” in the dictionary, it says “see Machinery Hill.” Catchy original songs with well-crafted lyrics along with beautiful mechanical interpretations of traditional tunes.

MICHAEL GULEZIAN Thursday, April 12, 2018 7:30pm – 9:30pm

Michael Gulezian (gu-LAY-ze-in) is one of the most highly acclaimed solo acoustic instrumental guitarists of our time. He is a phenomenal technical guitarist with the rare ability to transcend his own virtuosity, creating music that touches and moves people at the deepest level. He's been called the musical link between John Fahey and Michael Hedges. Artists as diverse as Michael Hedges, Willy Porter, and Henry Kaiser have claimed him as a primary musical influence; young lions such as Erik Mongrain and Andy McKee are quick to acknowledge him as an inspiration. In concert, Michael is all warmth and humor ... and though it's visually breathtaking to watch him perform, a concert with Michael is more than a display of cutting-edge virtuosity – it is the passionate communion of master musician engaged with his audience in the mystery of self-revelation, creating music of atmospheric power, ecstatic joy, and haunting beauty.  If you enjoy the artistry of musicians such as Leo Kottke and Michael Hedges – guitarists who amaze us with what ten fingers and one guitar can do – then you will love Michael Gulezian.
