Regina Carter

Genre: 
Date: 
Wednesday, August 24, 2011 - 6:00pm

Jazz violinist Regina Carter is one of today's most original and daring musicians. Classically trained, Carter grew up in Detroit, where she absorbed all of the music that Motown had to offer. In 2010, she released the critically acclaimed album Reverse Thread, an exploration of the rhythms and instruments of the African Diaspora. Carter brings her stellar technique and infectious energy to bear when she joins McPartland for "Chattanooga Choo Choo" and "In A Sentimental Mood".
