Lowcountry Jazz Day is one of the great traditions of the Charleston Jazz Festival. On this special opening day, Thursday, April 18th, local and regional jazz artists are showcased in a classic listening room setting. This intimate performance experience is one of the highlights of the festival and sells out quickly. Artists present a diverse range of jazz stylings, ranging from traditional to new, cutting-edge sounds.
