A knockout violinist.
Widely recognized as the finest jazz violinist working today, Regina
Carter has taken her fans on a fascinating musical journey over the
past 25 years. The former MacArthur Fellow has charted a highly
personal course through multiple musical landscapes, from tributes
to her mother, her hometown of Detroit and Niccolo Paganini, to
2010’s Reverse Thread, a contemporary celebration of traditional
African music. The next step in her musical odyssey, Southern Comfort,
explores the folk songs and spirituals her paternal grandfather, a coal
miner, would have heard as he toiled in Alabama.
