Savannah Music Festival

Robert Cray, Branford Marsalis, and Fatoumata Diawara (photo) are among the artists performing at Savannah Music Festival this weekend. 

This is the 25th anniversary of the festival, which features 100 performances spread across the city over three weeks and includes jazz, classical, funk and world music. In honor of the anniversary, Oglethorpe Gallery is hosting “Sound and Vision,” a collection of photos from the SMF archives by Frank Stewart and Ayano Hisa. 

Past performers at the SMF, the largest and certainly the most stylistically diverse music festival in Georgia, have included Amad Jamal, Kenny Barron, Maceo Parker, Bill Frisell, Marcus Roberts, Zakir Hussain, Eddie Palmieri, and Wayne Shorter.
