On Friday, Jazzkaar starts for the 24th time in Tallinn. The international music festival presents artists from 14 countries giving 60 concerts in 11 different towns.
In Tallinn, jazz can be heard on every corner. Musicians are going to surprise the citizens and guests at the airport, in trams and on streets. Jazzkaar’s home is by the sea – the custom built Marina Pavilion (Sadama 25/4) on the Tallinn Harbor grounds that seats 800 people.
The schedule of the festival is filled with many favourites – concerts of young soul jazz star Zara McFarlane from United Kingdom and pop jazz singer Gregory Porter from USA are nearly sold out already. For those who attend Jazzkaar with family, the Marina Pavilion offers concerts especially for children with circus artists from OMAtsirkus. Also, it is possible to ride on the Kajsamoor sailing ship.
Concerts will be also given in Viljandi and Tartu, the most jazz-friendly places outside of Tallinn during the festival.
Tickets are sold at Piletilevi selling points and in Internet at www.piletilevi.ee.
