This August 17, and August 18, 2013 you will enjoy the outdoors with some great events that will be happening this weekend.

First is the 20th Anniversary of the Idyllwild Jazz in the Pines, which celebrates the beauty of jazz amongst the trees, August 17 and 18, and although the mountain was devastated by fire this year. The fire will not put a halt to this year's fun, the gates will be open every day at 10 AM. Plus because of all the hard work by the firefighters who in many ways help to make this event happen the host of the festival wanted to offer free admission for both days of festival.

Idyllwild Jazz in the pine will be hosted by Kjazz 88.1 own Bubba Jackson. Performing this year will includes two-time Grammy-Award winning vocalist and pianist Diane Schuur; the Harvey Mason Chameleon Project led by Grammy Award-nominated composure/percussionist Harvey Mason, featuring multiple Grammy Award-nominated pianist/vocalist Patrice Rushen; first-class jazz vocalist Janis Mann; 21-year-old American Idol finalist Casey Abrams and the Southland’s own, Euphoria Brass Band. Plus performances from fan favorites such as P.S. Blues Band, Rocky Zharp & The Blues Crackers.

Proceeds from the event benefit the Idyllwild Arts Academy. For ticket information and direction http://www.idyllwildjazz.com/
