17th Annual Deer Isle Jazz Festival
Presented by Opera House Arts and the gWatson Gallery
The Deer Isle Jazz Festival has been breaking boundaries, enriching the state’s cultural life, and filling the summer air with beautiful music since 2001. World-class jazz musicians and fans from all over the New England region travel Down East to spend an evening together in our intimate and acoustically charmed Stonington Opera House.
This year, the Festival is expanding to three nights, at venues across the island. We begin on Friday night the Stonington Opera House with Nicole Mitchell’s ARTIFACTS trio. Saturday night we travel to the Reach Performing Arts Center for an evening with the Campbell Brothers, and Sunday night, finish off you jazz weekend at gWatson Gallery for an intimate evening with the Gary Smulyan Duo.
