About the Artist

Trying to fit Regina Carter into a neatly defined musical category is pointless. She enjoys performing many styles of music – jazz, R&B, Latin, classical, blues, country, pop, African, and on and on. In each she explores the power of music through the voice of the violin.

“Carter shines in any style she performs. Credit for this goes to her dazzling instrumental command, deeply expressive playing and unfaltering ingenuity” (The San Diego Union-Tribune).

A recipient of the MacArthur “Genius” Fellowship and a Doris Duke Artist Award, Regina has been widely hailed for her mastery of her instrument and her drive to expand its possibilities. “Her music resoundingly retains both its respect for jazz and classical traditions, and its creative edge” (The Guardian).

With her “pinpoint precision of pitch, seemingly effortless flow of melody and consistent fervency of phrase” (Chicago Tribune), “ Carter, building on the foundation of greats such as Ray Nance, Stephane Grappelli, Noel Pointer, and Jean-Luc Ponty, launches her sound into a brave new world” (The Arts Fuse).
