The Earshot Jazz Festival returns this year in an all-digital format! Now in its 32nd year, the 2020 festival will be streamed straight to you, with a mix of online concert performances, panel discussions, and an emphasis on racial, social, and gender justice. Jazz teaches us to listen, learn, and improvise. With Earshot’s typical programming model upended, they’re taking this opportunity to re-envision what a creative, community-focused jazz festival can look like.
Much-loved Hillman City violinist—and guitarist, mandolist, singer, and teller of tales of slavery, reconstruction, reconciliation, and still-broken promises—Benjamin Hunter blends musical disciplines to stirring, compassionate effect. Joined by Camilo Estrada on bass, Darrius Willrich on keys, and Chris Patin on drums, Hunter plays original music exploring the Black diaspora—from West African to the blues; jazz to Motown.
