Fort Mose Jazz & Blues Series: February 10-19, 2023
Grammy Award-Winning Jazz and Blues Artists Confirmed Over the Two Week Series
Over the course of two weekends, February 10-19, Fort Mose (moe-say) State Historic State Park will host its second annual Jazz and Blues Series. This year’s edition features some of America’s most well-known and accomplished performers including the legendary Mavis Staples and Gladys Knight! The Series consists of six unforgettable performances at the heart of Black History Month.
The site is especially appropriate. Fort Mose was established by the Spanish in 1738 as the first legally-sanctioned community for free Black residents in what is now the United States. Proceeds from this series will support the construction of an on-site fort representation and development of additional interpretive resources. The original fort was destroyed during the Battle of Bloody Mose in 1740. To purchase tickets, visit www.discoverfortmose.com.
