The 18th annual Harvest Jazz & Blues Festival runs September 9-14 in Fredericton, New Brunswick, features a full week of family-friendly and adult, free and paid concerts in a variety of settings.

Featuring an all-star lineup of leading jazz and blues artists from Canada and beyond, headliners include international greats including 5-time Grammy winner Buddy Guy (USA); pop stars Bloc Party (UK); guitar giants Derek Trucks (USA) and Ana Popovic (Netherlands); and jazz vocalist Sarah Jan Morris (UK) with long-time Sting guitarist Dominic Miller.
