Remarkable jazz violinist Regina Carter is one of today’s most original and daring musicians. Classically trained, Regina 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, Cassandra Wilson, and many others. A recipient of the MacArthur “genius” award and a Doris Duke Artist Award, Regina Carter is widely considered the finest jazz violinist of her generation.
