Adding to a busy weekend in late September, the Sun Valley Music Festival will enliven the Sun Valley Pavilion during harvest weekend activities.
On Saturday, September 25, living legends of gospel music The Blind Boys of Alabama will raise the Pavilion's roof. Members of the Gospel Music Hall of Fame, and winners of five Grammy Awards, The Blind Boys career spans over 60 years and shows no signs of diminishing.

And if jazz is your thing, Lew Soloff will perform as well. Soloff, a consummate fixture on the New York jazz scene, is known as a virtuoso with tremendous range and superior technical command. Soloff's expertise includes trumpet, flugelhorn, harmon mute, plunger mute and he is particularly recognized for his work on piccolo trumpet.
And local favorites, the Paul Tillotson Love Trio will also jam. Tillotson said, "my mission is to play great improvised music, deeply touching the souls of audiences around the world, spreading the joy that is created while creating music that comes from love."
