Karrin Allyson Benefit Concert


Karrin Allyson is a jazz singer and virtuoso pianist, 4 time Grammy nominee, with 13 cds. She plays regularly at Birdland in NYC, Jazz Alley (Seattle), Blues Alley (DC), and around the world: Brazil, Japan, France, and more. Karrin is appearing this year at the Newport Jazz Festival, and has been touring with the showcase group Newport Jazz Festival: Now 60, an all-star troupe including Randy Brecker and Anat Cohen. The New York Times says of her “… utter musical fearlessness … a complete artist – one of the jazz world’s finest…..” Last year, Karrin donated her time to perform a benefit concert to a packed house. Join us for an afternoon of jazz as Karrin once again sings and plays for two local non-profits which support work in the Democratic Republic of Congo. Woman, Cradle of Abundance, Inc., addresses violence against women and female poverty; United Front Against Riverblindness focuses on a horrific neglected tropical disease. For tickets, visit Part of the Fall Jazz and Beyond series.
