A knockout violinist.

—O Magazine

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.
