No, A Place for Jazz isn’t moving on to a new venue. It’s staying right there. But now jazz will be sharing the space with folk music, as a new concert series, A Place for Folk, has also moved into the Whisperdome.
A Place for Folk has scheduled a series of six concerts for their inaugural season, which kicks off on Saturday with the Chicago trio, Sons of the Never Wrong.
Tix are $16; students $14. A season ticket – providing one ticket for each of the six concerts – is also available for $84.
Doors open at 7:30pm; music begins at 8pm.
