JazzFest White Plains has announced the artist line-up for the 2022 festival, to be held from September 14-18 in several locations including ArtsWestchester, Grace Episcopal Church and White Plains Public Library.
Headliners for the festival include the Joey Alexander Trio, the Buster Williams Quartet, Grace Kelly and Ragan Whiteside and Friends. These major acts will also be joined by Miki Hayama and Richie Goods, the Albert Rivera Quintet, the Carlos Jimenez Mambo Sextet, the G. Thomas Allen Quartet and more.
Grammy Award winning instrumentalists Joey Alexander and Buster Williams will command the stage with their refined and unique performances. Alexander has been praised as one of the most engaging pianist-composers of his time, while also being the youngest artist to ever be nominated in the Jazz Grammy category.
Williams, a legend in his own right, has played alongside other big names including Miles Davis, Herbie Hancock and Betty Carter. The “Something More” Quartet, composed of members Steve Wilson (saxophone), Lenny White (drums) and George Colligan (piano/keyboard), will support him.
Grace Kelly has accomplished many milestones in her career despite her young age. She has released more than 10 albums, sold out numerous shows and even appeared on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert as part of the house band.
As a community staple, JazzFest White Plains has brought entertainment and culture to Westchester for more than a decade. It was produced by ArtsWestchester in collaboration with the City of White Plains and the White Plains Business Improvement District.
