SOLEIL – the Saint Lucia Summer Festival will kick off May 12-14, 2017 with Saint Lucia Jazz, a celebration of Caribbean and international jazz music. Musical performances will take place across the island culminating with three major concerts at the iconic Pigeon Island National Landmark.

This year’s festival lineup blends island culture, famed musical talent and eclectic music genres. Internationally renowned performers taking center stage this year include Grammy-nominated singer and actress Vanessa Williams and multi-talented Rachelle Ferrell. Additional headliners include pianist, composer and social activist Danilo Pérez; Grammy-winning drummer, composer and bandleader Terri Lyne Carrington; and Kenny Garrett, a Grammy award-winning jazz saxophonist and flautist who was a member of the Duke Ellington Orchestra and Miles Davis' band.
