JP Music Festival Raising Funds for 7th Annual Event Sept. 9

The Jamaica Plain Music Festival is a free community event produced by a volunteer group of residents (Rick Berlin, Justin McCarthy, Charles McEnerney, Shamus Moynihan, David Mueller, and Margie Nicoll) who want to bring the music of great JP musicians to the neighborhood we all love so much. In 2016, the festival featured 22 acts, eight food trucks and activities for kids. Thousands of people attended over the course of the afternoon. The JP Music Festival gives dozens of musicians the opportunity to perform for and gain new fans, for children to create and play instruments, and for Jamaica Plain and Boston to come together as a community and celebrate something we all love: music! We get a ton of support from Jamaica Plain businesses and event attendees.
