The 15th annual Historic Lewiston Jazz Festival kicked off Friday in the village with the French Quarter Hounds marching down Center Street; former Mayor Richard Soluri receiving an award for his long-time support of the event - which he helped create; Jenna Stinnis belting out the national anthem; and a performance by headliner Molly Johnson.
The Historic Lewiston Jazz Festival continued Saturday with Bobby Militello & St. Joseph University's Contemporary Ensemble leading the "Jazz Mass" at St. Peter R.C. Church, the Alec Dube Quintet and Barbara Jean performing on the Frontier House porch, acts Sabu Adeyola and Wendell Rivera on the Main Stage in the afternoon. Headliner Curtis Stigers performed there at night, entertaining hundreds of people seated around the courtyard and even more standing along Center Street.
