ArtActs 2020

Taking place in March, just before the COVID-19 pandemic shut down Austria, this festival in St-Johann-in-Tirol brought together European, British and North American musicians for one of the few times they were able to in 2020, including Hamid Drake and Franz Hautzinger. This year also marked the 25th anniversary of the festival, which included a display of photos by Susan O’Connor. A selection of performance photos are on this site under Gallery O, and more along with the festival review by Ken Waxman are at www.jazzword.com
