ABOUT THE PERFORMER
Jack West started performing at open mic nights at the tender age of 8 in his hometown of Rochester in Western New York.
He is a regular at the Fairport Music Festival and can be found at The Inn on Broadway during the Rochester International Jazz Festival where he has performed for the past three years. His gigs have taken him across the state of New York and beyond, where his most notable performance was at the Rock2Vote festival, an official Pearl Jam initiative in Missoula, Montana in the summer of 2018.
Jack writes his own music, plays guitar, bass, ukulele, and is currently teaching himself piano and attempting the banjo.
Jack is currently in the studio recording his first album with Barrett Jones of Laundry Room Studio. It will be available on multiple streaming platforms as well as vinyl in late spring of 2019.
As of today, we are being advised by the Monroe County Health Department that we will be unable to hold the 2020 Rochester Lilac Festival during the originally planned timeframe of May 8th -17th. As you can imagine, this is painful for all of us. However, we are hopeful and optimistic that we will be able to reschedule.
As time progresses, and more information is known, we’ll be letting you, our valued Festival participants and attendees know if, and when we plan to reschedule the Festival.
Hang in there and stay healthy.
Your Rochester Lilac Festival Team
