Since 1998, attorney Geoffrey “Geoff” Scovil has overseen his own law practice in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Specializing in Habeas Corpus law, he practices indigent criminal defense and works to protect his clients' constitutional rights. Geoffrey Scovil and his wife support numerous endeavors in the Albuquerque area, including the
Outpost Performance Space.
As a nonprofit, member-supported performing arts venue, the Outpost Performance Space features more than 100 shows annually. These include a variety of performances, including folk music, spoken word, youth performances, and jazz. Founded in 1988, the facility also offers year-round educational programs for youth and adults, including sessions on jazz and Latin music.
One event presented by the Outpost Performance Space is the annual New Mexico Jazz Festival. The festival, co-sponsored by The Lensic Performing Arts Center, was first held in 2006 and piggybacked on the former Open Arts Foundation’s Santa Fe Jazz and International Music Festival. The inaugural year of the New Mexico Jazz Festival saw Branford Marsalis and McCoy Tyner perform. The 2017 event occurred from July 13 to August 5.
Geoff Scovil received a BA in history, philosophy, and ethnic studies from the University of Texas at Austin.
