Kaunas Jazz Kick-Off

The Kaunas Jazz Festival is this weekend.  There are a number of concerts over the weekend — some ticketed and some free.  I spent Friday evening enjoying the beautiful weather and checking out the activities in Vienybės Square.

  • A marching band parade along Laisves Alėja
  • Sidewalk painting for the kids
  • Jazz standards performed on the carillon at the War Museum
  • A free concert by two good Lithuanian jazz bands — SharpFive and Jing’a’ling.
