2022 Hudson Jazz Festival

Lift Every Voice

February 10-13 & 17-20, 2022

Sing a song full of the faith that the dark past has taught us;

Sing a song full of the hope that the present has brought us.

Excerpt from Lift Every Voice and Sing, written by James Weldon Johnson 

Curated by Cat Henry, the Hudson Jazz Festival 2022 gives voice to artists as they respond to transformative events in our nation’s history and look toward a brighter future.

Held over two weekends in February (Black History Month) and featuring performance, art, film, spoken word and community events, HJF22 honors the spirit of the unofficial Black national anthem Lift Every Voice in a joyous, optimistic celebration of a new era of hope for equity, diversity, and inclusion.

The Hudson Jazz Festival 2022 features six performances from exceptional talents—multi-GRAMMY-nominated singer Jazzmeia Horn, multi-GRAMMY-nominated duo The Baylor Project; rising star vocalist Alexis Morrast; acclaimed vibraphonist Warren Wolf; GRAMMY-nominated saxophonist/composer Jimmy Greene and his quartet; and spoken-word artist, activist and TONY-nominated actor Daniel J. Watts.
