Jazz in June, Camden’s first-ever multi-day, multi-venue jazz festival, is set for Friday through Sunday, June 14 through 16. Tickets and all-access passes are on sale now.

The three-day festival will offer music both indoors and outdoors, including a couple of free concerts. The performances begin Friday evening with two events: Camden Opera House’s free Blue Café series presents the Bill Barnes Duo, and The Right Track Band plays a dance party at Camden Snow Bowl.

The Snow Bowl will host an afternoon of music Saturday at the mountainside featuring regional performers Katie Matzell, the Wayne Delano Quartet, the Whitehead/Dean Group, Hyperphonix and The Extension Chords.

Saturday night’s concert at the Camden Opera House will feature the Kenny Barron Trio, headlining an evening that includes the Greg Abate Quartet and the Peter Dembski Group. Pianist Kenny Barron, a Philadelphia native, collaborated with the late, great, tenor saxophonist Stan Getz and toured with his quartet, and he co-founded the quartet Sphere in tribute to Thelonius Sphere Monk.

The fest’s final day includes a jazz brunch at 16 Bay View (included in the all-access pass) and a free performance by the Mondaynite Jazz Orchestra in the Camden Amphitheatre.

Tickets are on sale at camdenoperahouse.com and jazzinjunecamdenme.com; by phone at 236-7963; at the Camden Town Office; and at K2 Music and Clean Bee Laundry in Camden. All-access tickets will be traded for a lanyard pass at the Jazz in June ticket and information hub in the Camden Town Office’s Elm Street lobby, June 13 through 15.
