Hanna Ruins Jazz Festival
Stupid Hurricane/Tropical Storm.
Arlington Arts, the good people behind the annual Rosslyn Jazz Festival, have just announced that the "predicted severity of Tropical Storm Hanna" has resulted in the festival's cancellation. No rain date or anything...just flat canceled.
If you were planning to head out to Gateway Park on North Lynn Street to see and hear pianist Lafayette Gilchrist, harmonicist Frederic Yonnet, singer Holly Cole, or the Spanish Harlem Orchestra–for that matter, if you were planning to stay in and listen to it on WPFW's simulcast–well, make new plans.
