FREE PERFORMANCE: September 28 & 29, One Beat will perform at the Jefferson Center. Don’t miss additional community projects, Music Lab workshops, performances and street studio projects throughout the weekend including thirty-two musicians from 21 countries representing hip hop, electronic, roots, jazz, rock, and experimental musicians.

These musicians are coming together to write, produce, and perform original music, and develop ways that music can make a positive impact on our communities. From Cambodian MCs to American bluegrass greats like Chance McCoy of Old Crow Medicine Show, to traditional instrumentalists from three continents, One Beat is a cutting-edge iteration of an age-old urge: to connect people and foster mutual respect through music and the arts.
