Carolina Performing Arts presents Fred Hersch & Julian Lage

  • Memorial Hall 114 E. Cameron Ave. Chapel Hill, NC 27599 USA

The relentlessly probing pianist, composer and conceptualist Fred Hersch opens undiscovered doors while exploring the jazz tradition to its fullest. With eight Grammy nominations, ongoing jazz and classical partnerships and historic collaborations with jazz legends Joe Henderson, Art Farmer and Stan Getz, he appears on more than 100 recordings, Grammy-nominated guitar prodigy and composer/arranger Julian Lage, subject of the Academy Award-nominated documentary Jules at Eight, distills guitar traditions from pre-bop swing to bluegrass flash, appearing with musicians as varied as Jim Hall, Mark O’Connor, Gary Burton, David Grisman, Joshua Bell and Yoko Ono. Together, this duo takes co-improvisation to new heights.

This performance is presented in collaboration with The Art of Cool Project.

Tickets start at $19.
