JR Smith Quartet - African Heritage Month Free Concert!

JR Smith Quartet live at the Halifax North Memorial Library

Join us for a FREE concert kicking off African Heritage Month, with incredible drummer JR SMITH, co-presented by Halifax Jazz Festival and Halifax Public Libraries, 7pm at Halifax North Memorial Library, 2285 Gottingen Street, Halifax, B3K 3B7.

Rising from the deep African-Nova Scotian tradition of musical excellence, JR Smith hails from the historic community of North Preston. He is a drummer, composer/multi-instrumentalist who attracts instant attention. The ease in which he plays, coupled with his shy demeanor, belies his youth and disguises his dangerously smooth arsenal of creativity.

Smith has opened for Aretha Franklin, Anderson .Paak, Robert Glasper, Alex Cuba, and Lisa Fischer -- meeting audience expectations with performances full of genuine emotion and technical fluency.
JR will be joined by Silvio Pupo- Keys, Matt Maclennan- Bass, Luke Arsenault- Guitar
