Lavender is in full bloom here in Sequim and that means Lavender Festival weekend is upon us. The best part of Lavender Weekend here for us? Jazz in the Alley! This year marks the 10 year anniversary of Jazz in the Alley and BrokersGroup Real Estate Professionals is proud to be sponsoring it once again. This year's anniversary brings a special treat. The Sequim Community Orchestra String Kids will be the opening act for Tracy Blume and her Jazz in Blume band. Tracy was one of the founders of Jazz in the Alley, and even though she's no longer a Sequim local she has had a heart for the community event since its conception in 2007. We are so glad to be welcoming her back to Sequim for this anniversary event.
Our very own Neil Culbertson was an integral part of Jazz in the Alley and contributed greatly to its growth until his passing last July. We are so glad to have Tracy here, and to be dedicating this year's performance to Neil Culbertson and Jean Haught, a Sequim business woman, lover of jazz and promoter of arts in Sequim.
Besides Jazz in the Alley. Lavender Weekend brings many opportunities to see live musical performances, attend lavender processing demonstrations and enjoy fine lavender foods. For more information about all things lavender and Lavender Festival related visit the Sequim tourism page.
