Founded in 1997, Edgefest is an award-winning annual avant-garde jazz and creative new music festival with a unifying purpose: to explore new music created by today's composers and performers from the United States and beyond. Under the direction of founder Dave Lynch, it began as a singleday event and is now a major 4 day festival that includes collaborations and educational outreach.
EDGEFEST 21: Drums Along the Edge is the 21 st edition of this annual internationally acclaimed creative avant/jazz music festival presented by Kerrytown Concert House (KCH) in October. The four-day festival will have a unifying purpose: to explore new music created by drummers/percussionists. A roster of distinguished, ground breaking drummer/composers with their ensembles will illuminate the innovative role percussion and these artists, both seasoned and emerging, have played in the avant/jazz world.
