Get ready for an unforgettable musical conversation featuring jazz, blues, and other American popular music, as vocalist Jennifer Kirkland and guitarist Bert Carlson appear in concert. This dynamic duo delights audiences with vibrant performances featuring imaginative arrangements of eclectic tune selections. Their concert programs include jazz standards, music from the great American songbook, blues and modern popular tunes done in jazz style. The talent and conversational stage presence of this duo combine to provide and engaging, accessible and entertaining musical experience for audiences of all ages.

Francis Stout of the former Folk Arts Revival Society in Rockingham County, Virginia has presented Kirkland and Carlson in concert several times. Stout says, "What sets them apart from many other jazz musicians, I feel, is their drawing on so many styles and worlds of music to reach out to a variety of audiences. This brings jazz to people who may have come in thinking 'I don't think I like jazz,' but who leave thinking "Wow! That was cool!"

This program is funded in part by the Virginia Commission for the Arts and the National Endowment for the Arts.
