The Halifax Urban Folk Festival is flat-out thrilled to bring The Jake Clemons Band, along with very special guest Adam Baldwin, to The Carleton on Tuesday, August 30th. Show time is 7 PM and tickets are $35 + HST. If the name Clemons sounds familiar, it should. Jake is the nephew of the late, great, Clarence Clemons and is the current sax player in Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band!
***Please note: we will be selling all seats in the room for this show. We will try our best to seat everyone with friends but this is not a table bubble event***
There’s the hair, then there are the glasses, but ultimately there is a person who is a magnet for positive energy, emotion, and creating stories. While he feels a deep connection to his past – Jake Clemons continues to make a deep connection in the present by living life to its fullest through a musical journey. If you take the mysterious, rugged side of Johnny Cash and mix it with the soulful down to earth love child of Bruce Springsteen and Clarence Clemons – shaken not stirred of course – you end up with the unique and talented Jake Clemons. He plays the guitar, sax, piano, and drums, he writes music, he sings, he loves rock ‘n roll!
If you are still wondering who Jake Clemons is then consider that he has shared the stage with Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, The Swell Season, The Roots, and Eddie Vedder to name a few. This is the roster of a man who is leaving a legacy of storytelling. Jake lives on a perpetual world tour, constantly releasing new music and engaging his growing fan base.
“I need to be able to engage people; that’s where I flourish.” – Jake Clemons
I think Adam Baldwin is pretty familiar to everyone in the Atlantic provinces as one of our rising rock’n’roll stars. If you’re not aware of his solo career (and you should be), you definitely know him as Matt Mays’ right hand man when Matt’s on the road. He’ll be performing solo to open Jake’s show and, as a Springsteen fanatic, he’s pumped!
