18th Annual Denison Jazz Guitar Festival

Fairs & Festivals

The country’s longest-running Jazz Guitar Festival is coming to Denison University on Saturday and Sunday, Oct. 4, and 5. It is important to Tom Carroll, the director of the festival, that the event includes both performance and education. “Music education is very much a part of this festival,” says Carroll. “I wanted to make these top musicians accessible to everyone, from the professional to the weekend amateur.” All events are free and open to the public.
