Maimouna Youssef co-headlines the third annual Soul Junction musical festival Sept. 14-15 at Johnson C. Smith University.

City meets village in the third annual Soul Junction.

Headliners for the two-day free music festival, which takes place at Johnson C. Smith University Sept. 14-15, include Harvey Cummings, Maimouna Youssef, Moonchild and Bilal.
Soul Junction highlights Historic West End. Its history spans back nearly two centuries, with neighborhood cornerstones like Smith, which celebrated its 150th anniversary last year.

“We are excited to bring Soul Junction back for yet another year,” said Alysia Osborne, director of Historic West End at Charlotte Center City Partners. “The Historic West End community has always been a gathering place, a place where people come from all over the region and the country to experience the best in soul, funk, jazz, art, food and much more. This year’s festival continues that tradition in this important community.”
