For the 2nd year in a row, Lake Anne has moved up their ever popular Jazz & Blues Festival from October to Labor Day Weekend. The 8th Annual Lake Anne Jazz & Blues Festival will take place Saturday, August 30, 2014. This free, family friendly, all-day event will take place from 2:00PM-8:00PM (tentative time) and will showcase a variety of talented regional and national jazz & blues performers.
Headlining this year is the drenching New Orleans sounds by the Adrian Duke Project. Adrian Duke’s piano is overshadowed only by the raw emotional power of his voice. Although he has found a home as a Blues artist, by blurring the lines between Blues, Funk, R&B, and Jazz, he has found critical acclaim, audience acceptance, and artistic peer recognition. Duke consistently and effortlessly demonstrates the exceptional musicianship and compositional brilliance that has become his musical signature – that have helped cultivate a tremendously loyal following in the Blues music communities. Other artists performing include Reston hometown favorites Mykle Lyons Quintet and Sam Gunderson.
