Morristown Jazz & Blues Festival
The Morristown Jazz & Blues Festival has expanded so that everyone can enjoy free music on Friday at Pioneer’s Plaza and on Saturday on the Morristown Green. Once again, the Morristown Jazz & Blues Festival will pay tribute to Linda Smith who was one of the festival founders and co-produced the event for years, and Michael Fabrizio who was also one of the founders and served on the festival board. They both sadly passed away in 2021.
