Robillard, who will headline the Thursday concert, has been lauded by B.B. King as “one of the great guitar players.” Besides King, Robillard has played alongside such music legends as Bob Dylan, Tom Waits and Jimmy Witherspoon.

Friday's headliner, Haque, is a jazz guitarist and instructor who combines his many influences and technology to craft a sound he calls “jazztronica,” with the help of his band.

All Jazz in June performances are free, and jam sessions are planned after each night's concert.

Additionally, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, Jazz in June will feature “Clinics with the Artists” at the Performing Arts Studio, 200 S Jones Ave.

Participating artists will include Haque, Echols and The Dirty Dozen Brass Band.
