Winter Blues Fest Warms up Williamsburg VA
(Published: January 05, 2015)

Organizers of the Winter Blues Jazz Fest hope locals and out-of-town guests alike will shake off the seasonal doldrums with four days of live music throughout the area.

The series of 12 events starts Jan. 15 and runs through the weekend at multiple locations, kicking off with an evening of jazz at the Muscarelle Museum of Art.

It also stars a beer and music festival, free community concert, and a collection of jazz brunches at local restaurants.

The project is the brainchild of Jennifer Raines, owner of the High Street gallery and shop Quirks of Art, and Steve Rose, president of nonprofit Eco Discovery Park and owner of Williamsburg Event Rentals, along with David Everett, chef and co-owner of Blue Talon Bistro, The Trellis Restaurant and DoG Street Pub

Winter Blues Jazz Fest events:
Art of Jazz: 6 to 9 p.m. Jan. 15 at the Muscarelle Museum of Art, $30. Good Shot Judy will provide an eclectic blend of jazz standards to accompany the museum's artwork.

Jazz Jam: 6:30 to 10 p.m. Jan. 16 at the festival heated tent on Duke of Gloucester Street, $15. Three groups - The Dog Street Rhythm Kings, The Harris Simon Trio and Holly Hunt & Limelight - will perform individual sets followed by a joint, one-hour jam session.

Mixology & Music: 7 p.m. Jan. 17 at the Williamsburg Lodge, $60 or two tickets for $100. Michael Bellar and the As-Is Ensemble will play high-energy music to pair with samples of cocktails from the area's top bartenders.

Jazz Brunch: 11 a.m. Jan. 18 at The Trellis, Le Yaca French Restaurant, Opus 9 Steakhouse, Waypoint Seafood and Grill and Blue Talon Bistro, $35. Different ensembles will perform at each of the five brunch spots for two hours while guests feast on food and a signature drink.
