Jazz!

In conjunction with the Midcoast Jazz Society and the Boothbay Harbor Chamber of Commerce Lincoln Arts Festival began sponsoring jazz concerts in 1996. Annually New England's finest musicians from small combos to big bands perform in the Boothbay Region. For many years Ned and Barbara Freeman spearheaded these exciting events. We continue to honor the Freemans with the happy tradition of jazz as an ongoing part of our program.

 Novel Jazz is a Maine-based group, now in their 17th year of concerts around Maine and New England.  Their mission is to share the music and stories of these two giants of standard jazz who wrote some 3000 compositions over their musical careers, two percent of which represents the well-known standards and 98% of which most have never heard.  They’ll perform tunes from the Ellington/Strayhorn repertoire plus newly arranged compositions that they have unearthed in the Ellington Archives of the Smithsonian Museum of American History as well as the new Strayhorn Collection at the Library of Congress (both in Washington D.C.).  Many of these tunes have not been heard in decades.   Novel Jazz members have rearranged these pieces for the septet, dusted them off and given them a 21st century sound, all of their own.  Admission is  $25.00.
