Famed Newport Jazz & Folk Festivals Go Non-Profit


NEWPORT, RI, January 25, 2011
The famed Newport Jazz Festival® and Newport Folk Festival ®, held in
Newport, RI, since 1954 and 1959 respectively, have returned to their
original roots as non-profit events. The Festivals will now be produced
under the umbrella of Newport Festivals Foundation, Inc., a newly-formed
501(c)(3) organization. They will still be produced by George Wein and
his veteran staff. 


Foundation will perpetuate the history of jazz and folk music in
Newport and will allow these festivals, which have been my passion and
life’s work, to live on,” said Wein, Jazz Impresario and NEA Jazz
Master.  “Little did we know that when Louis and Elaine
Lorillard asked me to present a summer jazz event in Newport it would
spawn two annual festivals that would capture the hearts of world-wide
music fans for more than six decades.” To continue, Please click “MORE”!
