According to the page on the Fairport Canal Days music on the Find it In Fairport site, "[m]usic has been an integral part of Fairport Canal Days since its inception, and this year is no exception." There has always been a lot of local jazz talent at the Canal Days festival, but this year, June 1-2, they have even more, as the site says festival goers "can expect a huge variety of music from traditional standards, bebop, contemporary, funk, smooth, big band, and Latin jazz, as well as some popular favorites outside of the jazz realm." Although I'm not in town to join you, I wanted to get the schedule out for my readers as it is wide selection of the local jazz scene. I'm including all the bands (not just the jazz) below:
