Edgefest 2023

The Michigan town of Ann Arbor, best known as the home to the University of Michigan Wolverines, has another claim to fame in its annual festival of creative improvised music. The appropriately named Edgefest worked its magic for the 27th year, presenting a diverse array of established and emerging talent over a four-day period in October. Eighteen performances were offered, most of which were held in the acoustically friendly Kerrytown Concert House where the audience included a significant number of returning fans. Over 70 national and international performers took the stage this year, most of whom are captured in the following photographic display.
