Regina Carter

Southern Comfort

Friday, Mar 27, 2015 — 7:30PM
Palmer Auditorium

Violinist Regina Carter is considered the foremost jazz violinist of her generation.  Her curiosity, passion, and quest for beauty are more apparent than ever on her new album Southern Comfort (Sony Music Masterworks), in which she explores the folk music of the South, specifically the tunes her paternal grandfather, a coalminer, would have heard as he toiled in Alabama.  Intent on making the past, present, Regina sought out distant relatives and books about the era in which her grandfather lived.  From there, she went to the Library of Congress and the renowned collections of folklorists such as Alan Lomax and John Work III digging deep into their collected field recordings from Appalachia.  Regina’s work interprets her own roots through a modern lens.
