Repost from this past Winter: I’ve had quite a few folks as about the Jazz & Blues Series going on at Fort Mose Historic State Park so I thought I’d share the info and more images from Friday night’s show with The Legendary Count Basie Orchestra … Stacey Sather

Here’s the info:

“The inaugural Fort Mose Jazz & Blues Series is a collection of six memorable performances honoring both the rich history of American music and the legacy of the first free Black settlement in what is now the United States.

In the course of two weekends, from February 18-26, 2022, world-class artists: The Count Basie Orchestra, Amythyst Kiah, Tank & The Bangas, Gregory Porter, and Trombone Shorty will grace our stages to celebrate these two incredible genres of music at Fort Mose Historic State Park. Proceeds from this event will support the construction of an on-site fort representation and the development of interpretive resources. The original fort was destroyed during the Battle of Bloody Mose in 1740.

Join us as we celebrate history, freedom, and creativity–through the incomparable joy of live music.”
