The Folly Jazz Series Moves To 2021

Because of COVID-19 health regulations, all previously scheduled 2020 Folly Jazz concerts will now pivot to next year. (Understandable, given that the venue would only be able to seat approximately 200 patrons when socially-distanced. That would make it difficult to cover even the most basic costs for each concert.)


Thus, the October 17th Karrin Allyson concert moves to January 22nd and the December 12th David Benoit concert is now postponed until next season. To date, the beloved Folly has lost over 80 performances since the pandemic hit—accounting for nearly half of their annual operating revenue. While the news is disappointing, the Folly remains hopeful with their revised 2021 jazz series performance calendar.

The updated scheduled is below:

  • Jeff Lorber Fusion – January 16th
  • Karrin Allyson – January 22nd
  • Anat Cohen – February 12th
  • John Pizzarelli – February 13th
  • Paquito D’Rivera – March 20th
  • Eliane Elias – April 9th
