|THANK YOU! The 2013 Festival was Amazing!
|The 7th-annual Salem Jazz and Soul
Festival, held at Salem Willows the
weekend of Aug. 17-18, was an
unprecedented success due to the
contributions of hundreds of individuals
More than 6,000 people attended the two-day, free
concert and they all contributed to a family-friendly, safe
weekend in a beautiful setting with perfect weather.
Thanks to all the individuals and organizations who
pitched in to make this happen -- sponsors, volunteers,
musicians, audience members, Berklee College of
Music, Salem State University, all city departments,
Mayor Kimberley Driscoll, Rep. John Keenan, Ellen
Talkowsky, dedicated volunteers, residents around the
Willows, Salem Trolley, the Hobbs and Campbell
families, and especially Wire 4 Hire, Inc.
You all helped us forward our nonprofit mission of
producing free concerts and donating to music
The Salem Jazz and Soul Festival is run by an 11-
member volunteer board of directors and I’d like to
personally thank them for all their hard work.
We look forward to next year.
Larry Claflin Jr., volunteer executive director, Salem
Jazz and Soul Festival
