Montavilla Jazz Festival ’21

August 20, 2021 - August 22, 2021

PORTLAND, OR—If local icons like Mel Brown, Tom Grant, Nancy King, David Friesen, Ron Steen, and Leroy Vinegar ushered in a resurgence of jazz in Portland that blossomed in the 1980’s, a new group of influential artists were handed the torch in the new millenium. One of the most influential of those artists in Portland over the past decade and a half, Farnell Newton, will headline the 8th Annual Montavilla Jazz Festival running August 2022 live-streamed from Portland Metro Arts and screened for in-person viewing at select locations in Montavilla and around Portland. For the first time ever the Montavilla Jazz Festival is entirely FREE. This year’s festival is bolstered by the world-premiere and repeated screenings of a new music-meets-film project, Call + Response, presented in collaboration with Portland Art Museum, Open Signal and Mobile Projection Unit.
