BROWARD COUNTY, FL - Chill out to live music among the ancient live oaks T.Y. (Topeekeegee Yugnee) Park is known for. Friends of T.Y. Park, the volunteer support group established last year, will present a Jazz & Blues Music Festival starting at 2PM on Sunday, March 18. The concert is free, although the park's regular weekend gate fee of $1.50/person (children 5 and under free) will be in effect. The Music Club of Hollywood, which for years has partnered with Anne Kolb Nature Center on a free classical music series, is a co-sponsor. South Florida musicians who will perform include Wes Anthony (saxophone), Nevada Hardy (jazz piano), Bonefish Johnny (blues guitar), Mark Bornfield (trumpet), D'Jamin Bartlett (vocals), and Kris Nicholson (honky-tonk piano).

For further information, call the park at 954-357-8811. T.Y. is accessible via Broward County Transit Route #12.
