MILWAUKEE'S INTERNATIONAL MUSIC CELEBRATION OF GUITAR GREATS

“What we’ve seen on the national level, and the local level, is a real uptick in Jazz”

–Piet Levy

Established in 2013, it is the goal of the Wilson Center Guitar Festival to celebrate the greatest guitarists of today and tomorrow. Not only does this event celebrate great international guitar players, it features some of the strongest from SouthEastern Wisconsin.

We also discuss the rise in original Jazz music here in MKE.  From the newly re-opened Jazz Estate to the brand new spot Gibraltar, there is a lot going on in Milwaukee’s Jazz scene.  You can dig even deeper into the inspired resurgence of Milwaukee jazz here.
