September 14-19th, 2010
Fredericton NB, Canada
The Harvest Jazz and Blues Festival in Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada, is celebrating its 20th anniversary from September 14th to 19th in what’s sure to be a jam-packed week of world-class performances by over 125 artists on 23 stages across four downtown city blocks!
The Festival takes over the entire downtown of New Brunswick’s capital city for one week in September, as the best of blues, jazz, world and alternative music spread through big-top tents, open-air stages, theatres, and bars.
Headliners of this year’s Festival include blues giants such as the Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi Band, John Hiatt, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Grace Potter & the Nocturnals, Maria Muldaur and a New Brunswick native who took first place at the 2010 International Blues Challenge in Memphis, Matt Andersen.
On the jazz side, the Festival has Grammy winning jazz singer Kurt Elling, all-star jazz ensemble Jane Bunnett’s African-Cuban Jazz Project, New Orleans’ Kermit Ruffins & the BBQ Swingers, rising star Meaghan Smith, and Richard Underhill, as well as unique jazz collaborations playing in our all-jazz venue all week long.
The Festival knows how to rock out as well, with shows by Canadian rock royalty, Big Sugar, The Trews, Hill Country Revue (the new project of members of the North Mississippi All Stars), Elliott Brood, and Australian troubadour Xavier Rudd & Izintaba, to name a few.
Over 35% of our programming is free, while ticketed shows range from $5-$55 dollars, allowing something for everyone, no matter your musical taste or budget!
Come soak up the music, experience our famous Maritime hospitality, and have a week you will never forget! Enjoy amazing performances in uniquely intimate festival venues and outdoor stages with historic backdrops along the beautiful St John river...truly the best international festival experience on Canada's East Coast!
