JazzFest 2017 is set for August 27, 2-4 PM, and it is an all-star line up of artists. Conrad Herwig on trombone, Vincent Herring on alto sax, Mike LeDonne playing a Hammond B3 organ, guitarist Paul Bollenback, and Jeff “Tain” Watts on drums will perform at Renfrew Institute’s 26th annual event. The event is held on the lawn behind the Renfrew Museum farmhouse. The concert is free and open to the public. Bring a lawn chair and enjoy a summer afternoon of hot jazz.

The concert is followed by an informal question and answer period. The rain site: Waynesboro Area High School auditorium.

Underwriting support provided last year by lead sponsor, FirstEnergy Foundation on behalf of West Penn Power, plus a grant from the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts, a state agency funded by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania and the National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency. Additional support provided by Franklin County Visitors Bureau, Hamilton Nissan, and Hamilton Hyundai. A special thank you to Renfrew Institute’s Today’s Horizon Fund donors: The Nora Roberts Foundation, Alma W. Oyer, APX Enclosures Inc., and the Carolyn Terry Eddy Family.
