Ocho Rios Jazz Festival
Jazz fans know that June is the time to be in Ocho Rios for the annual staging of its Jazz Festival. Talented performers from across the world come together for nine days of music celebration. The event is hosted at various venues across the island including Montego Bay, Kingston and Ocho Rios. Performers are expected from France, England and the United States, as well as the Caribbean. Past musicians included Kingsley Ettienne and Hugh Masekela. The event includes jazz lunches, teas and a culture tour to places such as Dunns River Falls. Admission to some of the events is free.
I had a great time this year at the Ocho Rios Jazz Festival. The music was the greatest, especically on Father Day. I would like to know where I can find any recorded music by Effie Burt, who is from the USA, also Dr. Kathy Brown. Will I see these two ladies next year performing with the festival? I would love to see Dr. Kathy Brown and Effie Burt perform together. I have already booked my hotel and airfare for next year. Thanks for great music. Also can I find out if Sonny Bradshaw is better, he was ill this year.
This was my 4th festival. The Hibiscus Lodge was more than I expected, Wilson Tours was alwasys there for us, Evita's was a blast, and the music all week made it wonderful. I had a ball and will return!
