We are also proud to announce that Outpost also recently received a $25,000 grant from the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) to support the New Mexico Jazz Festival and ancillary events! We have been very fortunate to receive support from the NEA for the NM Jazz Festival since our first festival in 2006 (including the NEA Jazz Masters on Tour support) and we continue to present NEA Jazz Masters each year! This year’s NEA grant supports the entire NM Jazz Festival and NEA Jazz Master, violinist Regina Carter will perform on Sept. 14 at The Lensic in Santa Fe. Retired NEA Chairman, A.B. Spellman, will also host a Meet the NEA Jazz Master event! Check out this year’s 17th Annual NM Jazz Festival Schedule Here!
