RICHMOND, Va., May 22, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- This August 9th, 10th and 11th, the 2024 Richmond Jazz and Music Festival invites you to immerse yourself in "Sounds & Colors" at historic Maymont. Celebrating music, art, and community, this festival transforms every moment into a kaleidoscopic experience of art, creating an electrifying atmosphere where music isn't just heard?it's seen and felt. Join this rich tapestry of people and music and take part in this vibrant celebration that brings together diverse voices and sounds.

This year's festival boasts an impressive lineup of dozens of artists, including celebrated acts that highlight the nation's rich musical talent.

Festivalgoers will delight in the legendary rhythms of Lee Ritenour and Bob James and get into the groove with the energy of St. Paul & The Broken Bones, Trap Jazz, Snarky Puppy, Moonchild and many others. Fans of jazz vocalists will be enraptured by the voices of Andra Day, Terisa Griffin, and returning jazz festival artist, Gregory Porter.

This year, we are thrilled that the legendary Wyclef Jean is our Artist in Residence, bringing his signature guitar and vocals to both stages:

"For me, this takes me back to my Jazz roots. My calling in high school was Jazz. This is where I became the captain of the jazz band. I produce most of my music from the space of jazz fusion and I'm inspired by Quincy jones and Miles Davis. This is an honor. I look forward to collaborating with the incredible artists, participating, this year."

With this eclectic mix of jazz, blues, R&B, and hip hop, there is sure to be something that speaks to every music enthusiast.
