HUNTSVILLE, Ala. — The Alabama Women in Jazz Festival celebrates its eighth year with a two-day live event on Sept. 10-11. The event was virtual in 2020 due to the COVID pandemic.
Organizers are excited to welcome people back to the outdoor festival at the Bob Harrison Wellness and Advocacy Center. Patrice Bivens says, "It's just going to be a really good time and we're happy that this community will be able to support these powerful women."
This year's performers are:

- Yuressa Shonta, Saxophonist - Saturday, 4:00 p.m.
- JaVonne Jones, Electric Violinist - Saturday, 6:00 p.m.
