Summer Events on Kauai
Red Clay Jazz Festival- June 25-28th, 2014
Kauai’s Red Clay Jazz Festival first came into fruition when the Kauai Concert Association received the W.S. ‘Pete’ Robinson Memorial Jazz Fund in 2003. Since 2008, the mission of the Red Clay Jazz Festival has been to bring an international set of Jazz artists to Kauai’s stages for concerts and student classroom learning experiences. Kauai visitors and residents are encouraged to join this fabulous event, which takes place in a variety of gorgeous tropical settings, with the blue Pacific Ocean gorgeously framed in the distance. This summer, the Red Clay Jazz Festival will present a wide array of brilliant Jazz musicians including Diane Schuur, Mississippi Heat, Jimmy Borges & Betty Loo Taylor, Will Bernard, Ken Emmerson, and many more.
