WICN’s Emerging Artist Concert Series

Once a month WICN Public Radio hosts a concert focused on Emerging Artists from across the jazz landscape with two hours of fresh Jazz+ music.  These live performances can be found in a myriad of shows.  From The Blend to Colors of Jazz to Bluegrass Junction, and more.  We will feature music from emerging artists from all over New England.

The Emerging Artist Series Live Performances will be open to the public on a first-come, first-serve basis. Space will be limited.
The Emerging Artist Series on WICN is made possible thanks to the support from The George F. and Sybil H. Fuller Foundation.
