2020 Charleston Jazz Festival-The World of Regina Carter
Remarkable 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 the music that Motown had to offer. Though her work draws upon a wide range of musical influences – including Afro-Cuban, swing, bebop, folk, and world – she has crafted a signature voice and style on the violin. She has performed with Aretha Franklin, Patti LaBelle, Wynton Marsalis, Kenny Barron, Billy Joel, and Cassandra Wilson. A recipient of the MacArthur “genius” award and a Doris Duke Artist Award, Carter is widely considered the finest jazz violinist of her generation. The Charleston Jazz Festival presents The World of Regina Carter January 24 at Charleston Music Hall.
