Cassandra Wilson is best known as a jazz singer and instrumentalist, but she has broken out of the traditional confines of the genre to include elements of blues, country and folk into her music. She draws on influences ranging from Miles Davis and Hank Williams to Joni Mitchell and Robert Johnson. In addition to her two Grammys, Wilson has won the Django D'Or and The Edison Music Award, and been recognized with a marker on the Mississippi Blues Trail. She also performed one of the leading roles in Wynton Marsalis' Blood on the Fields, the first jazz work to receive a Pulitzer Prize. Learn More

Musical colleagues Barbara Higbie and Peppino D’Agostino offer a multifaceted evening of music celebrating the winter solstice. Barbara—a Grammy-nominated composer, multi-instrumentalist, and singer—and Peppino—a virtuoso acoustic guitarist, composer, and singer—join forces for a performance that features solo and duo sets ranging from originals to what Barbara describes as “musette pieces, some acoustic funk, a splash of classical, Italian, Irish, and African, but mostly our own unique music played in a warm, interactive manner.”
Higbie’s music combines technical brilliance and joie de vivre. Her eclectic background includes classical piano and violin studies, immersion in the musical culture of Ghana, and groundbreaking work with the jazz-folk-bluegrass band Montreux and with Terry Riley. Her compositions combine jazz, folk, classical, African, Brazilian, and Celtic elements to create music that is lyrical, rhythmically playful, and harmonically inventive.
A native of Italy, D’Agostino combines technical prowess with the rich lyricism and passion of his Mediterranean heritage. His compositions, marked by dynamic rhythms, constant changes in tuning, and evocative melodies, highlight his distinctive method of playing. Peppino, who won Guitar Player magazine’s 2007 Reader’s Choice award for Best Acoustic Guitarist, now resides in the Bay Area.
