Tickets Now On Sale For Star-Studded Saint Lucia Jazz Festival
Tickets are now on sale for the ‘2020 Saint Lucia Jazz Festival Produced in Collaboration with Jazz at Lincoln Center,’ and exciting additions to the festival lineup should make the 7-9MAY event a hot seller.
“A Special Evening with Patti LaBelle” will feature songstress Patti LaBelle in rare intimate performances at The Ramp on Rodney Bay on 8 and 9MAY.
"It has been over 10 years since I last performed at the Saint Lucia Jazz Festival. It's such a beautiful island with beautiful people and I can't wait to get back,” said LaBelle. “I'm really looking forward to performing and being a part of an amazing experience, that people won't soon forget!"
Exclusively for the Saint Lucia Jazz Festival, Chucho Valdés and Esperanza Spalding will perform together for the first time in “Chucho Valdés Summit with Joe Lovano and Esperanza Spalding” at Gros Islet Park on 9MAY.
On 8MAY, Valdés, the celebrated Cuba pianist, bandleader and composer, will appear as special guest on ‘Celebrating Roy Hargrove with Willie Jones III Quintet featuring Renée Neufville.’ For this special performance, Valdés will reprise tunes he and Roy Hargrove recorded on the album Havana which earned Hargrove his first Grammy in 1997.
Singer and songwriter Lisa Simone will perform at Gros Islet Park on May 7th. Her recent standout -- and sold out -- performances in Martinique highlight her ability to transcend genres and echo the tradition of her mother, musical icon Nina Simone.
