Blues guitar legend Junior Watson will open the festival on July 7 at the main tent on the waterfront. The following night, Russian-born, Israeli-raised, Toronto-based jazz singer Sophie Milman will take the stage at Casino Nova Scotia. Back at the tent, the “Screaming Eagle of Soul,” Charles Bradley, will close the festival on July 13.
