At its core, Jazz Port Townsend is a week-long workshop led by Artistic Director John Clayton where people from all over the world come to live and learn with some of the finest jazz musicians playing today. Starting on Friday, we hit the lights and the renowned artist/faculty take to the stage for mainstage performances in Fort Worden State Park’s 1200-seat McCurdy Pavilion.  Plus, 2013 will see a return of the popular “Jazz in the Clubs” series, where intimate venues in downtown Port Townsend, WA, come alive with the sounds of jazz.
