“Bringing the world to San Diego is one of my favorite things,” said Jordan Peimer, ArtPower’s executive director since 2014. “I love to present different styles of American music — Appalachian, Creole and Cajun, among others. And I’m so happy to finally have international artists back. To be able to bring music from places like New Zealand, Israel and France does my globalist heart good.”
