Thursday7:00 PMThe Vail Series presents Catherine Russell
The Vail Series welcomes contemporary jazz and blues vocalist Catherine Russell in concert. 2016 has been an eventful year for Catherine Russell. In January, Russell was featured in an hour-long concert performance on Public Television’s American Songbook as part of the NJPAC series. In February, Russell joined the fellow members of David Bowie’s last touring band, as well as pop-singer Lorde, for a moving Tribute to David Bowie at the 2016 Brit Awards.
In April, Russell appeared at The Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. to sing the grand finale at the 2016 NEA Jazz Masters Award Ceremony, and then traveled to Los Angeles for a live taping of Radio Deluxe with John Pizzarelli. Her concerts, “Catherine Russell: Sunny Side of The Street”, at Jazz at Lincoln Center’s Appel Room in April, which saluted her personal connection to Sy Oliver, were featured on NPR’s “Jazz Night In America.”
Sassy, smart and historically minded, this New York-based singer has the jazz world abuzz,” says the LA Times.Open to Public: YesAdmission: Tickets are available beginning Monday, Oct. 30.
