Turtle Island Quartet with Liz Carroll
Two-time Grammy Award-winning Turtle Island Quartet joins forces with renowned Irish fiddler and composer Liz Carroll. Winter’s Eve evokes visions of a frosty winter’s eve and year-end celebrations from around the globe. Songs of the Celtic winter solstice and yuletide reels from Ireland reside with tunes of Hanukkah, a Hindu spiritual and a Miles Davis holiday classic. Turtle Island Quartet continues its own tradition of employing the string quartet form to shed new light on the timeless joy and beauty contained in the greatest music of an American jazz master. Transcending genre and era, John Coltrane’s jazz epiphany, A Love Supreme, is also featured in this program. Recorded at a time when the country was deeply troubled by issues of race and war, Coltrane’s music was a personal statement of redemption and salvation that struck a chord in the hearts of millions, becoming one of the most enduring jazz recordings of all time.
