The Carolina Lowcountry has a culture of its own. From the scenery, which is shrouded in live oaks and Spanish moss, to the cuisine, which is heavy on seafood, okra, grits, and other coastal southern ingredients, there are lots of unique things to love about the Lowcountry. The region is also known for its jazz heritage. To immerse yourself in local music, check out the Lowcountry Jazz Festival.
Charleston, South Carolina played an important role in the early development of jazz. The annual Lowcountry Jazz Festival honors the city's role in popularizing jazz music. It unites jazz lovers from around the southeast! It also serves as the primary fundraiser for Closing the Gap in Health Care, Inc.
