For three days each summer, the Chester County Jazz Festival fills the area's local parks and music venues with the swirling notes of international and local jazz talents. This year, the event begins on Friday, June 29, as jazz great Peter White unwinds original melodies from the nylon strings of his classical guitar. Drawing inspiration from greats such as The Beatles, Eric Clapton, George Benson, and Django Reinhardt, White mixes the shoulder-shaking rhythms of rock and the smooth, relaxed fingerpicking found in the Spanish countryside. Like the footsteps of a tyrannosaurus, White gets audiences moving with songs from his expansive discography, including 2012's Here We Go.
Comedian C.P. Lacey heats up the mic and warms up the audience's applause muscles with spirited impersonations of celebrities such as Louis Armstrong, a young James Brown, and Prince. The Point Blank Jazz Band also takes the stage, rolling out a carpet of smooth tunes honed in Philadelphia's own jazz clubs.
After the opening festivities, the Chester County Jazz Festival will continue throughout the weekend at Hoopes Park. In addition to live music from headliners Warren Hill on Saturday and Ronnie Laws on Sunday, the 16-acre venue will host activities for children and opportunities to collect fresh air for later consumption. A portion of the festival's proceeds goes to the Chester County Food Bank and The Stephen Chandler Ericson Foundation.
