I’ll be sharing a few final thoughts about the Savannah Music Festival and its economic and public relations impact in my City Talk column on Tuesday, but I wanted to go ahead and assemble links to most of my commentary from the last month or so in a single post.
I never got around to writing a specific review of the Del McCoury Band performing with the Preservation Hall Jazz Band, but that’s not because I didn’t love the show. I just never got my act together.
Ditto for last night’s stellar Trustees Theater performance by Paco de Lucia and his amazingly talented ensemble.
I wish I had the time to see even more shows than I did, but it’s tough with my regular teaching gig at Armstrong.
Here are my various posts and columns beginning with the most recent (updated on 4/11 with one last City Talk column).

I also posted links to chamber music shows from this year’s festival on NPR Music: here, here, here, here, and here.
