Juneteenth Jazz Festival

Saturday & Sunday, June 18 & 19, 2011

The 13th Annual Juneteenth Festival, celebrating the Emancipation Proclamation Act of 1864, will once again bring an exciting lineup to northern Arizona. This year we feature 'next generation,' two extraordinary vocalists for two days of the music festival. Ray Brown Jr, the son of the legendary parents Ella Fitzgerald and bassist Ray Brown and Freddie Eckstine, the son of the extremely popular ground-breaking vocalist and band leader Billy Eckstine. In Addition, there will be great musical ensembles covering the genres from New Orleans raggae, funk, rock, blues, and gospel. Also included are New York bassist Don Miller, The Rachel Eckroth Trio, and of course The Milt Cannon 'Giants of Jazz.'
