Idyllwild: Jazz in the Pines – August 28 & 29, 2010

Jazz pianist David Benoit performs Aug. 29 at Jazz In The Pines

Top jazz and blues artists perform this weekend at the 17th Annual Jazz in the Pines in Idyllwild. The 2-day event takes place August 28 & 29 amid a forest of oak and pine trees on the grounds of the Idyllwild Arts campus. Headliners include Grammy-winning saxophonist Tom Scott, jazz pianist David Benoit, New Orleans jazz vocalist Kenny Washington, and Latin-jazz pianist Oscar Hernandez. In all, there will be 20 musical acts performing on multiple stages throughout the event. A wide array of food concessions will be available and over 65 artisans from across California will be selling handmade items.

The purpose of Jazz in the Pines is twofold; to promote the American Art Form – Jazz, and to raise scholarship funds for the Idyllwild Arts Academy and Summer Program.

Idyllwild is located in the San Jacinto Mountains on Hwy 243, just two hours from Los Angeles or San Diego, and one hour from Palm Springs or Palm Desert.

  1. I'm too late for the jazz festival but it is a good reminder that I'd like to take a day trip there soon, just to walk around and photograph cabins.
