Nordic Jazz 2013 - Five Countries, Eight Concerts!

The Nordic Embassies and Twins Jazz Club are excited to present the seventh annual Nordic Jazz Festival in Washington, D.C., June 20-29, 2013. Jazz artists from Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden will present the modern sound of Nordic Jazz over the course of one week. Concerts will take place at the embassies of Finland and Sweden as well as at the renowned Twins Jazz Club. This year the festival is bigger than ever and presents a rare opportunity to sample seven very different world-class Nordic groups and solo artists.

The rooftop concert is a staple for our group, and although a bit of a splurge at $30, it's really a unique event in Washington. Jazz bands from Iceland, Sweden, Denmark and Norway will take the rooftop stage at House of Sweden, Embassy of Sweden. Doors will open at 6:30 pm, first band at 7:00 pm. It will sell out.
