BRIC Jazzfest 2023 Announces Lineup, Featuring Georgia Anne Muldrow, Terrace Martin, and More

BRIC, a leading, multi-disciplinary arts and media institution anchored in downtown Brooklyn, unveiled the artists slated to perform at this year’s BRIC JazzFest.

Set to take place at BRIC House from October 19-21 with two stages, this year’s festival promises to be an extraordinary celebration of jazz and its influences. In addition to the live acts, BRIC JazzFest will kick off the first night with a special panel discussion exploring the intersection of Jazz and Hip-Hop, with an ongoing film series taking place onsite during the festival.

Some of the artists announced for the festival include Reggie Workman, one of the most original and technically gifted bassists in jazz and American contemporary music, vibrant and versatile jazz saxophonist Alexa Tarantino, and multi-instrumentalist and rising staple Ciso Swank. Other acts include Sarah Elizabeth Charles, Nite Bjuti featuring Candice Hoyes, Val Jeanty, and Mimi Jones, Strings N Skins, and Panikkar Rosner & Leigh. Also happening at the BRIC Jazzfest is Jonathan Michel: L’Ouverture, a world premiere concert featuring Emeline Michel, Riva Precil, and Val Jeanty, celebrating the vital role of Haitian women in music and culture.
