On the third night of the Halifax Urban Folk Festival, The Jake Clemons Band played to a sold-out room at The Carleton. Jake Clemons is the nephew of the late, great saxophonist Clarence Clemons AKA “The Big Man” of Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band. When his uncle passed away, filled those big shoes and has been a member of the legendary E Street Band since 2012. Jake’s solo project, The Jake Clemons Band, showcases his effortlessly cool stage presence, captivating storytelling, and incredible songwriting. Bringing that E Street Band stamina, the band rocked the house for 2.5 hours.
Opening the show was Adam Baldwin, who is no stranger to The Carleton stage, who played his upcoming album, “Concertos & Serenades” in its entirety. In the encore, Adam joined Jake and the band for a cover of “With a Little Help From My Friends.”
