Ringing in music festival season on the east coast, the 2017 Savannah Music Festival begins on Thursday, March 23rd. The pioneering cross-genre festival is in its 28th season, staging original productions and unique pairings in jazz, classical music and a wide variety of American and international roots music styles. Founded in 1990 as a multi-disciplinary event and transitioning to solely music in 2003, SMF presents world-class folk, fine and pop art in intimate ven- ues throughout the alluring, congenial and walkable historic district of Savannah, Georgia. Programming is led by Executive & Artistic Director Rob Gibson, with Associate Artistic Directors Daniel Hope, Marcus Roberts and Mike Marshall.
