ARTISTS IN RESIDENCE

Each year, the annual Dutch World Jazz festival Amersfoort Jazz presents special Artists in Residence from The Netherlands and abroad. The Artists in Residence perform with several acts on several stages throughout the four days event in the city of Amersfoort. Over the years Amersfoort Jazz has welcomed Gino Vannelli, Houston Person, Deborah Brown, Ronnie Cuber and Eric Alexander from the USA, next to Rits Reys, Eric Vloeimans and Jasper van ‘t Hof from the Netherlands. This year, renowned bassist Essiet Okon Essiet from the USA would have been International Artist in Residence, but this did not proceed because of the COVID crisis. Young Amsterdam based drummer Sun-Mi Hong from South Korea is this years National Artist in Residence, playing at the theatre on November 21 with Alto for Two and November 22 with het Sun-Mi Hong Quintet.
