Old Webster Jazz & Blues Festival Schedule; It's Saturday

Here's the lineup for the acts scheduled on Saturday at the 12th annual festival. It's free!

The annual Old Webster Jazz & Blues Festival is staging its 12th year on Saturday with acts starting at noon on two stages and music running into the night.

"This year we focused on bringing a wide range of musical styles to our stages—all with their roots here in St. Louis," said Terry Perkins, musical director for the festival, in a statement when the acts were announced. "Our city really is the crossroads of many of history’s best sounds—everything from ragtime to jazz to blues to R&B."
