Firefall To Headline Grand Junction Art and Music Festival
Firefall will headline the Grand Junction Art and Music Festival, formerly known as the Art and Jazz Festival.
The name of the festival isn't the only change attendees will notice. The Grand Junction Art and Music Festival runs May 9 through May 11, while it will still feature jazz music, it will also include other varieties of music as well.
Firefall, which originated in Boulder, and scored top 40 hits like You Are the Woman, and Just Remember I Love You, will headline the Friday night line up. Opening for Firefall, will be the Saturday night headliner, Carrie Rodriguez. Rodriguez is a fiddler, singer, and songwriter described by The Dallas Observer as someone who can "switch from barn-burning country to noir rock, to heart-breaking folk."
Other performers at the Grand Junction Art and Music Fesival are Jordan Soul, western Colorado's Shea Bramer, Josefina Mendez Jazz, Ethyl and The Regulars, Alycia Vince Jazz Quartet, and the Bobby Walker Blues Band featuring Dr. Paul Schneider.
Another change in the festival this year is there will be three different stages instead of just the main stage at 4th and Main.
As usual, Main Street will be lined with art vendors, craft beer and local wine will be available along with gourmet food, and there will be new art on the corner sculptures. A new event this year will be a Main Street Art School.
One thing that is not changing is the admission prize. Admission to the Grand Junction Art and Music Festival will remain free of charge.
