     With the Hudson Valley Jazz Festival now entering its 6th year, an ambitious four day event encompassing 7 towns, 14 venues and 24 shows, festival founder and producer Steve Rubin continues to promote and highlight diverse jazz talent from the greater Hudson Valley while expanding the number of venues that are participating. His mission, in part, has been to bring first-time local performers to the series. He said, "This year, I'm most proud of the fact that we have the greatest number of musicians who are playing in the festival for the first time."

     Welcome to Warwick Valley Music, where you can listen to the music of area musicians who currently stream their work through Spotify. This project was inspired by several years of frequenting the local music scene and listening to the music of many of the talented musicians who play throughout the area. Discovering their work on Spotify, I was encouraged to share their work with the community at large while at the same time encouraging the community to share some of their favorite local artists and tracks to this playlist as a way to promote musicians and their music. The hope with this project is to encourage the continued support of local live music, to inspire musicians to continue creating music, and to give us all an opportunity to share the wealth that resides in our communities, both locally and globally.
