Cathartes, Cuzin Richard Launch New Festival
Portsmouth, NH – Cathartes, the Boston-based real estate firm that developed PortWalk Place, will present, in cooperation with Cuzin Richard Entertainment, The Portsmouth Jazz & Blues Festival on November 12 in the PortWalk Place neighborhood—this according to an announcement by Richard Smith (aka Cuzin Richard) a well-known Portsmouth entertainment agent.
The new festival, according to Smith, represents a revival and merger of two “legendary Portsmouth music festivals” originally staged in the 1980s but later discontinued. The November event will present more than a half-dozen blues and jazz acts, which will perform on as many stages inside Portwalk’s hotel and restaurant businesses from noon to 6 pm on the Sunday date, he said. The festival will be free and open to the first 1,000 festival goers.
