Press release from Chant Down Baltimore: 

Situated in the midst of more than 100 scenic acres, Chant Down Baltimore is a Reggae, Roots and Culture festival held in Carroll Park annually.  Hosted by a variety of supporting organizations the festival is the brainchild of Junior, the host of WLOY’s “I Never Knew Radio” and YouTube’s “I Never Knew TV” who wanted to bring a show together to highlight the culture and history of the Caribbean and African nations.  Working with WLOY Loyola Radio to find community connections in Baltimore, a plan was made to host a free festival to celebrate the community and uplift the city. The amazing people of Southwest Baltimore at SoWeBo Music Series and The Friends of Carroll Park jumped in and made it possible to host the festival in the gorgeous Carroll Park.

Years of work in the Reggae community, through music, interviews and stories led Junior to make many connections.  When he started talking about putting on a show the love flowed and artists from all over asked to be a part of this new event. The artists for the 2019 show are from Jamaica: Iba Mahr, Chevaughn, Ryan Bailey, and Imeru Tafari; from New York: Autarchii, Derrick Barnett and The Statement Band; and from Baltimore:  Soul Cannon.

ChantDown Baltimore is a free concert, but the artists have asked if people can bring articles of clothing or canned food items to donate at the entrance for Paul’s Place, an amazing local community program working to uplift those in need.

Additionally, The Mount Clare Museum House will be open for free tours from 2-5pm.

The weather forecast says 83 degrees and sunshine, so join us on Saturday, June 22 from 1-7pm for an incredible day of music in beautiful and historic Carroll Park.
