Jenni Johnson and the Jazz Junketeers will perform live for the Feast & Field Music Series on Thursday at 5:30 p.m. This series is a weekly celebration of music, food and community held in the Fable Farm Orchard in Barnard, featuring performances by top artists in an outdoor setting. BarnArts and the Feast & Field farmers will provide locally sourced food and drink, much of which is harvested and produced right in Barnard.
Singing jazz, blues and funk has been a central part of Jenni’s life since her teenage days in New York City, where she was born and raised. In the 1970s, while working towards her masters in education, Jenni was involved in several musical productions at UVM. She now resides in Burlington.
Jenni Johnson has been described as “a renaissance woman” in the Burlington Free Press, Seven Days, Vermont Woman, the Rutland Herald, and news outlets in New York State.
Jenni has become a regular presence around Vermont. Her full, smooth voice offers an ideal format for the collection of American jazz classics as well as blues, swing and funk music.
Tickets are sliding scale $5-$25 per person, free for kids 12 and under.
