Steel City Jazz Fest 2013

The 2nd Annual Steel City Jazz Festival features ten shows and nearly twenty groups packed into the span of four days. The 2013 Steel City Jazz Festival will take place from August 22nd to August 25th, 2013. We are very pleased to be partnering with three fantastic live music venues this year: Homegrown Hamilton, The Baltimore House and The Pearl Company, as well as the Hamilton Waterfront Trust Stage for our opening show. The Steel City Jazz Festival was founded by Chris Ferguson and Emily Milko after returning from a trip to the 2012 Detroit Jazz Festival. Maybe it was the result of riding high after seeing both Wayne Shorter and Sonny Rollins perform in one weekend, but Chris and Emily decided to give throwing a jazz festival a try. And so preparations began and in September, 2012 the Steel City Jazz Festival was born.

Featured artists include Aubrey Wilson Quartet, Brian Browne, Canadian Winter, Carissa Kimbell, Cat Bernardi Quartet, COP, Eschaton, Haolin Munk, Jazz Connection Big Band, Mike Malone with the Chris Platt Trio, Sean Dowhaniuk Group, Sound One, Thom Mason Trio and many more.
