Now in its 7th year, the Lancaster Avenue Jazz and Arts Festival brings free live music and dance at Saunders Park in West Philadelphia from noon to 7 p.m. this Saturday. There’s phenomenal talent on the lineup, such as Grammy awarded saxophonist Tim Warfield (pictured), local smooth jazz performers Philayva, Glenn Bryan, the Philadelphia Clef Club Youth Ensemble, the West Powelton Steppers, the Universal African Dance and Drum Ensemble, and more. If that isn’t enough, starting at 10 a.m. you can browse around booths of local artisans and join in the uGO Health and Fitness Challenge.
The festival supports the People’s Emergency Center, a community nonprofit providing social services to homeless single mothers. Bring along some non-perishable food items to help support the PEC’s Food Cupboard. Surely to be anything but dull, the day will have a mix of jazz, R&B, dace, and world music to uplift the community and support a vital cause. Below, watch a video profile of Tim Warfield.
