Saint Lucia Jazz Eases Cliff Hangers!
Toni Nicholas into such components as the “opening” after the failure of “Popcann” who headlined that event last year. Having artistes like Beres Hammond, who has a repertoire of sing-along hits which can carry through for over two hours, is also a plus. My only point of caution would be to allow Robin Thicke to close over Jimmy Cliff. This, I predict, will be as catastrophic as last year’s Maxwell finale. True, Thicke currently has a lot of muscle in the industry and his name alone is sure to create much buzz and excitement among his millions of Twitter and Instagram followers but as a closing act and to bring out the vocal fireworks to end the festival on May 10, Jimmy Cliff must be the man. That said, overall I think the line-up is a good one and hopefully the festival which runs from April 30 to May 10, 2015 will again be the talk of the town, not just in Saint Lucia but across the region and internationally too.

2015 Saint Lucia Jazz & Arts Festival.
