A Soulful Groove Awaits At The Highland Jazz and Blues Festival

The Fall Season in Shreveport welcomes back a favorite for music fans around the country, the Highland Jazz and Blues Festival in Mid September. This exciting free, music festival is where we find a soulful groove as musicians take over two stages to perform at Columbia Park.

Among the recent headliners are New Orleans' Soul Rebels Brass Band, six-piece funk rock band Flow Tribe, Professor Porkchop and The Dirty Dishes and Shreveport bluesman Buddy Flett. As well as performances by The Red River Valley Band, Easy Money, a young musicians' showcase and a tribute to the late blues musician Jerry Beach.

Along with music, the festival will include Artists' Alley, where you can find one-of-a-kind jewelry, artwork, home décor, jams and jellies and more. And, there will be plenty of savory selections to sample from the region's most popular restaurants and food vendors that will include everything from Caribbean jerk chicken to Cajun jambalaya.

This a pet-friendly festival with a dog park available, so bring along your furry friends. Parking may be limited near the event, so a free shuttle to and from the festival will be available. Bring your chairs and blankets and spread out on the park lawn for a evening of great music and festive fun for all at the Highland Jazz and Blues Festival.
