A Relatively Punctual Lauryn Hill Wows Montreal Crowd With Fugees, Solo Hits At Jazz Festival

Call her unprofessional, call her late for dinner, but one thing you can’t call Lauryn Hill is a bore.

The erstwhile Fugee (somewhat) bucked her reputation as a seldom punctual performer by taking the stage a mere hour late at the Salle Wilfrid-Pelletier, Place des Arts for the first of two nights at this year’s edition of the Montreal Jazz Festival. The acoustic guitar with which she opened her set was set aside as Hill’s soulful crooning gave way to her impressive skills as a rapper, hearkening back to her years spent with the influential hip-hop group of the mid-’90s.

When she wasn’t singing hits from the group’s The Score she played crowd favourites from her solo album The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill.

Watch below for highlights from Hill’s set.
