Oregon Festival of American Music 2023 (both Winter and Summer) takes a wide-ranging journey down the thoroughfares and byways of 1940s popular music from mainstream popular song to the new forms of jazz evolving out of big band swing. OFAM 2023 Summer (slated for August 2-12) focuses specifically on WWII, a rich and varied theme we first visited in 2016. At OFAM 2023 Winter, Chuck Redd and company offer up a set of concerts that touch upon a choice selection of especially favorite songwriters, composers and performers from that culturally rich and eventful decade, including a tributes to Johnny Mercer and Hoagy Carmichael, Billie Holiday, the closing years of the Swing era, and the rise of Bebop and Cool Jazz.
