Charleston Jazz Festival: René Marie & Experiment in Truth – JUMP IN THE LINE! TOUR

René Marie & Experiment in Truth @ 2024 Charleston Jazz Festival
Friday, April 19 @ 5PM

René Marie is a very rare artist. A modern vocal icon, her unique artistry has been recognized with multiple domestic and international awards, including two Grammy Award nominations for Best Jazz Vocal Album. A lyricist, composer, arranger, playwright, actress, educator, speaker, and social justice activist, René is an Americana roots artist with jazz improvisational chops. Influenced by her southern upbringing, she incorporates folk, R&B, country, and classical elements into her music and approach, lending her a unique sound and style that have captivated audiences worldwide. Over a span of two decades, 11 recordings, and countless festival and concert stage performances, René inspires people with her artistry, her life story, and her ability to affirm the power of the human spirit.
The Charleston Jazz Festival is proud to feature René Marie & Experiment in Truth as they showcase the music of their highly anticipated Jump In The Line! Tour. This beautiful concert intersperses the most-beloved calypso selections of Harry Belafonte with lesser-known facts about his use of music to effect social change. Each musical selection (arrangements by trumpeter Etienne Charles) is curated to engage the heart and mind of both long-time fans of Harry Belafonte and more recent acolytes. Don’t wait, jump in line and reserve your tickets today!
