One of Rochester's most beloved performers Jackson Cavalier can be seen enchanting audiences with his intricate folk-influenced Americana tunes in venues and street corners across the city.

Voted numerous times as Rochester's Best Busker, the multi-instrumentalist offers a dynamic and enigmatic performance which has received national praise. Bring a group of friends and a listening ear to Hochstein at High Falls for an afternoon of original music. The High Falls Business Association has once again teamed up with The Hochstein School and WXXI to present Hochstein at High Falls, a noontime summer concert series. The series includes ten outdoor concerts Thursday afternoons at 12:10 pm during June, July and August. Weather permitting, they will be held in the Granite Mills Park near the Pont de Rennes Bridge and will feature a diverse mix of musical artists and instructors. Attendees are encouraged to bring their own seating and lunch, or pick up a great lunch at area restaurants (like La Luna and Fina's Cafe). Each performance runs approximately 50 minutes.

Voted numerous times as Rochester’s Best Busker, Jackson Cavalier combines blues, folk, country, bluegrass, and Americana. He released his first album, “Barefooted & Still Breathing,” with his band The Fevertones in 2013. His latest solo album, “Spellbound,” was heavily inspired by the music of Townes Van Zandt, Conor Oberst and the Mystic Valley Band, and Shakey Graves. “He's a dynamic, exciting musician, who combines different styles of music and literary influences into really cool, compelling songs,” says WXXI’s Mona Seghatoleslami. Playing harmonica, guitar, drums, and singing all at once, he performs a variety of re-imagined covers and originals at festivals, farmers markets, and beyond.
