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, saxophonist Boney James, pianist David Benoit, acoustic guitarist Marc Antoine, electric guitarist Nick Colionne, keyboardist Brian Simpson and saxophonist Eric Darius. Also featured are rising flutist Althea Rene, R&B/jazz singer-songwriter Selina Albright, and saxophonist Jazmin Ghent. More talent is set to be added in the coming weeks and months.

The Greater Charleston Lowcountry Jazz Festival is the primary fundraiser for Closing the Gap in Health Care, Inc., a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization whose primary mission is decreasing health disparities and increasing health literacy, especially for African Americans and the underserved in our community, South Carolina, and the nation.

The organization airs radio and television health tips, publishes a weekly e-newsletter, and provides information on social media to improve health literacy. Lectures, seminars, and youth and community activities are also provided by Closing the Gap in Health Care, Inc.

Proceeds from the 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.
