The 6th annual Jazz in the Canyon will take place Thursday through Sunday, Sept. 28 to Oct. 1 in various venues throughout Dunsmuir.

Previously a summer event, Jazz in the Canyon 2017 is now held in the cooler days of autumn celebrating one of America’s own true art forms – jazz. Multiple venues will feature many jazz musicians locally from various parts of California and beyond.

Downloadable maps and schedules are now available for Jazz in the Canyon 2017. They will also be available in print in various locations that will be hosting live music and participating. For maps of the venues, artists’ biographies, and convert/venue details see jazzinthecanyon.com.

Sisters Suzanne Scull and Allison Scull organize Jazz in the Canyon purely for the love of music and the town they live in Allison says. “This event is different in that all music takes place within the venues, and not on a main stage. It is always a beautiful thing when live music stays alive and generally Suzanne and I get excited to see venue owners and artists share in the love of music. Also, we now have a concert for children to encourage involvement with music from a young age.”

For all performances at Pops Performing Arts and Cultural Center, advanced tickets at $10 are available in Dunsmuir at Dunsmuir Hardware, in Mount Shasta, and in Redding at the Music Connection.
