Shreveporters open calendars to add Highland Jazz and Blues Fest on Sat, Sept 19, noon to 5 pm

Highland Jazz & Blues Fest, Shreveport

"Highland Jazz and Blues Festival headliner, Papa Mali, is bringing Big Chief Monk Boudreaux from New Orleans along with a few other special guests for an All Star Super Jam," says Kelly Rich about the 2015 fest on Sat, Sept 19, noon to 5 pm. Additionally, look for zeitgeist food and existential acts in abundance on the 2 stages.

Launched in 2003, the Festival has grown from a handful of bands and a crowd of 500-1,000 to a gathering including two stages, ten bands, posters, t-shirts, food and art sales, and 10,000 music fans in Highland area’s hilly Columbia Park. The annual Festival is a gift to the community from the Highland Area Partnership doing business as the Highland Jazz & Blues Festival Presented by Twisted Root.

Proceeds from poster, t-shirt, and beverage sales, donations, and sponsorships are used to bring the Festival back each year.

Highland Jazz & Blues Festival, PO Box 44292, Shreveport, LA 71134.
