The Lowcountry Jazz Festival, South Carolina’s premiere annual Smooth Jazz event, celebrates its 10th Anniversary in 2018 in a dynamic new venue – the Charleston Gaillard Center – and with a stellar lineup of superstar artists and up and coming instrumentalists and vocalists. The festival continues its Labor Day weekend tradition, kicking off Saturday, September 1.
The 2018 headliners include chart-topping genre icons and GRAMMY Award nominees saxophonist Boney James, vocalist Avery*Sunshine, pianist David Benoit and Neo-soul crooner Eric “Erro” Roberson. The stellar festival line up also includes acoustic guitarist Marc Antoine, Nick Colionne and Matt Marshak, keyboardist Brian Simpson and saxophonist Eric Darius. Also featured are flutist Althea Rene, R&B/jazz singer-songwriter Selina Albright, and Smooth Jazz Artist of the Year, saxophonist Jazmin Ghent.
Proceeds from our Festival support the mission of Closing the Gap in Health Care, Inc. and the Thaddeus John Bell, M.D. Endowment Fund. This scholarship fund was created conjointly with the Coastal Community Foundation of South Carolina to assist students who pursue a health science degree and graduate from the Medical University of South Carolina. This will facilitate an increase in the number of African American health providers in the state.
