Riley Mulherkar and the Festival All Stars

Joye in Aiken presents Riley Mulherkar and the Festival All Stars March 8 at Second Baptist Church. Mulherkar has been recognized as a “smart young trumpet player” by The New York Times and praised by The Wall Street Journal as a “youngster to keep an eye on.” Mulherkar is a founding member of The Westerlies, a new music brass quartet that creates the rarest of hybrids: music that is both “folk-like and composerly, lovely and intellectually rigorous” (NPR Music). Mulherkar works with a number of leading artists, including Wynton Marsalis, Dee Dee Bridgewater, Alan Cumming, and Anna Deavere Smith, and serves as artistic director for Jazz at Joye in Aiken.
