The Halifax Urban Folk Festival presented a free outdoor concert at Grand Parade in Halifax on Saturday, September 3rd featuring Jake Clemons Band with Dear Rouge and Mick Davis. The evening weather was perfect to enjoy some good music!
Mick Davis is a singer/songwriter from St. John’s, Newfoundland, and fronts the rock band The Novaks. He hit the stage first, performing a solo set.
The closing act was the American Jake Clemons Band. As of 2012, Jake Clemons has been the saxophonist for Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band. His first solo album, Fear & Love was released in 2017, and in 2019 his album Eyes on the Horizon was released.
I’m Shayla, and I was born in Saskatoon but moved to Halifax in 2013 for University, and since decided to stay here for a while. I recently received a Bachelor of Design, after studying photography for a year or two as well. I love everything about music and how it has the ability to bring so many people together from across the country and even the world. My passion for music is one of the reasons I moved East to pursue a photography and design career, as I would love to do graphic design and photography within the Canadian music industry.
