Sunday, July 16, 8:30pm
Waterfront Main Stage
With The Mellotones


Halifax-based Gypsophilia is a group of six performers (including Talent Trust scholarship recipients Matt Myer and Gina Burgess) playing original high-energy jazz that is by turns angular, sweet, nostalgic, modern and raucous. 

In recent years Gypsophilia has become a formidable touring outfit, regularly crisscrossing the continent and playing to sold-out crowds all over Canada and the US. Their killer live shows and danceable, genre-bending sound have made them an audience favourite at major festivals and small clubs alike. With a combination of serious musicianship, humour and showmanship they are capable of enchanting a sit-down crowd one moment, and whipping people into a dancing, clapping, singing frenzy the next.

Saturday July 15th, 8:30pm

Waterfront Main Stage

With Anderson .Paak & The Free Nationals

From the Jazz Festival website: 
Smith’s silky soulful voice—honed as a jazz major at St. F.X.—is undeniable. She’s quickly become a rising R&B/hip-hop artist in just a few years, accomplishing much in a scant amount of time, including an opening slot for Grammy winner Lisa Fischer, winning three African Nova Scotian Music Association awards, and in 2015 being named Artist-in-Residence at Casino Nova Scotia. A sensitive, powerful performer, Smith will transfix you as she lifts you up.
