The Richmond Jazz Festival

One of my friends, Sarah, was telling me about this amazing event that goes on once a year in the Richmond area. Now, I wouldn’t normally stick to one location and blog about it from post to post, but Richmond, Virginia keeps popping up on my radar any time I ask or search around for the newest and most exciting festivals in the US.

The only reason Sarah was actually telling me about this particular festival, is because her father’s company was invited to set up their photo booth there. They are PhotoBoothRentalRichmondVA.com so please give them a shout out from Grant if you decide to go and do some jazzin’ around.

After she told me about it, I started doing some fair amount of research and was eager to find out more. It turns out that the roots of the festival don’t run too deep, since jazz music hasn’t been around all that long. (more…)

RVA Folk Festival Lineup

 

There’s an upcoming festival up in Richmond, Virginia called the Richmond Folk Festival. It’s a fair and a festival that has roots dating back to 1900’s when Richmonders weren’t even Richmonders yet, but instead the common folk who enjoyed a good, old-fashioned party! Ever since then, it has grown into a huge, if not a massive party / fair where people come from all over the world to see the top performers of all kinds of different(new or unexplored) types of music. This year’s lineup has been announced on June 2nd and it is looking very promising. (more…)
