Charleston’s own Quentin E. Baxter has been making the Lowcountry proud since his very early days in Charleston County public schools. A graduate of College of Charleston’s Music Theory and Composition program, Baxter grew as a percussionist under the tutelage of Robert Ephraim, Oscar Rivers, Jr., Lonnie Hamilton III, and more.
Baxter’s talent and passion for sharing his cultural and spiritual tradition through music has taken him around the world, performing at The Kennedy Center, Jazz at Lincoln Center, Joy of Jazz Festival in South Africa, France’s Toulouse Jazz Festival, Italy’s Spoleto Festival dei Mondi, and his hometown’s own Spoleto Festival USA.
These days, Baxter can be found touring the world with Rene Marie and Grammy-nominated vocalist Freddy Cole. He is a professor of Jazz Percussion at College of Charleston and is working on a solo drum recording, Gullah Breadbasket: A Drummer’s Perspective.
