Smith. The Festival takes place over 7 days from June 5th-11th and includes an abundant amount of events taking place in several locations including:

Bill Dixon


Bill Dixon was a musician (trumpet, flugelhorn and piano) and teacher born in Nantucket, MA. His early studies came from the Harnett Conservatory of Music and (contrary to my misinformation) he studied painting at Boston University, WPA Arts School and the Arts Student League. He also worked at the United Nations and founded the UN Jazz Society, as well as the Jazz Composers Guild. He has worked with Archie Shepp and Cecil Taylor and was a professor of music at Bennington College for nearly 30 years. He passed away in June of 2010.

Joseph Daley Earth Tones Ensemble Seven Deadly Sins Trailer on YouTube

Joe Daley, the amazing tuba player of Hazmat Modine will release his masterpiece composed on seven pictures of Wade Schuman. The bigband titles are the result of a 40 years music carrer.

This trailer is an indication of the new CD by Joseph Daley, entitled "The Seven Deadly Sins", which will be released in late November.

Joseph is a native of New York and perhaps this country's most consistent and creative "Lower Brass Specialist". Among others he has played with Sam Rivers, Carla Bley, Taj Mahal, Charlie Haden, Gil Evans, Lionel Hampton, Howard Johnson, Dave Douglas, and Muhal Richard Abrams. He appears on well over a dozen recordings.
