Along with her trio, featuring Arthur Migliazza on Piano, she'll return to the Jabez Sanford Hardin Performing Arts Center. One of the premier interpreters of vintage pop music, Carole J. Bufford, and one of the top boogie-woogie pianists in the world, Arthur Migliazza, join forces to bring you a knock-out musical road trip as refined and elegant as it is lowdown and sexy. From the Beatles to Boogie-Woogie to Blues to Broadway, Carole and Arthur combine their love and command of the classic popular songbook into an evening filled with delightful stories, rich education, and utterly irresistible music. Come find out why Carole has been hailed as the new “Last of the Red Hot Mamas” (Wall Street Journal) and why Chuck Berry’s piano player describes Arthur as “The New Master.”
Stephen Holden, writing about Carole in The New York Times, said, "The real thing: you know it when you see it...The way her voice, with its blues inflections, cut a swath, leaving nothing standing, tempts me to describe her with groveling hyperbole as an earthier, more acerbic 21st-century Barbra Streisand. "
DOORS OPEN AT 7:00 PM
