Ryan Meagher: All about the 2021 Montavilla Jazz Festival / Coffeeshop Conversations @ Artichoke Music #305

By TOM D'ANTONI // Everything you want to know about the 2021 Montavilla Jazz Festival, August 20-22 from guitarist/composer/co-curator Ryan Meagher.

Composer/guitarist Ryan Meagher is in the Artichoke Café with me today at yet another turning point in the long sad saga of trying to make and listen to music during the pandemic.

He’s one of the folks who plan and execute the Montavilla Jazz Festival around this time every year. OMN is happy to be a sponsor. It’s the festival home for what we used to call “avant-garde” music. I don’t know if anyone has settled on a new name for it but you know what I mean.

This year it’s Friday, August 20 to 22nd.

Ryan will tell us about it, but since we do these a week or so in advance and since covid protocols have changed, please check with their website to find out if there are any changes. https://montavillajazz.org/

Meanwhile, I delayed turning on the recorder until we had talked baseball for a while, which we always do.
