American Made Series

The American Made Series will feature blues, jazz, bluegrass and world music throughout the year. Already booked to perform in the 2016 season are Chatham County Line, Who Shot John, Lao Tizer Quartet, Le Boeuf Brothers, Scott Miller, René Marie and Cleek Schrey.

In response to the interest of continuing the presence of blues, jazz and bluegrass music at Garth Newel, the American Made Series will feature artists of those genres throughout the year.  The American Made Series is a deveopment from the former Virginia Blues & Jazz Festival, but fits into the music center’s larger commitment to champion these genres as integral to the entire year round program rather than as a once-a-year Summer Festival.
