Folly Jazz Series

Smooth, Afro-Cuban, Romantic, and other styles of jazz make up our 37th Folly Jazz Series

We’re ecstatic to officially announce this year’s line up for the 37th Annual Folly Jazz Series. As the longest-running jazz series in Kansas City, we take great pride and great care in the artists that we book to perform at our historic venue. 

This season’s line up is rich with talented musicians including the legendary stylings of saxophonist Branford Marsalis and jazz guitarist John Pizzarelli; while at the same time including the bubbling energy of newer faces to the jazz scene like Afro-Cuban jazz artist Pedrito Martinez and the romantic vocal stylings of Stacey Kent.
