Although the Loyal Earth Festival 2009 scheduled for this weekend in St. Louis will feature primarily musicians identified with the jam-band scene, the event also will include some acts of interest to jazz fans.

Billed as “5 Days of Music & Art to Celebrate Our Planet," it's being produced by local promoters Loyal Family and former Lucas School House proprietor Dan Jameson, and will take place Thursday, April 16 through Monday, April 20 at the Old Rock House, 1200 S. 7th St. in downtown St. Louis. Promising to “transform the Old Rock House property into a music & arts festival grounds," the event will includes more than 30 musical acts playing on two stages - one outdoors, the other inside - plus “live Art - Earth Awareness - Fire Dancers - Vendors - and More!"

The pick day for jazz fans would seem to be Sunday, April 19, when the organ-driven funk-jazz trio Medeski Martin & Wood will be playing outside from 8:00 p.m. to 10:30 p.m., followed by guitarist Fareed Haque and the Flat Earth Ensemble inside from 10:30 to midnight. For a complete schedule of bands, go here.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
