Rutherfurd Hall Jazz Summer Series: Allan Harris Quartet

Friday, August 24, 2018 - 7:30pm

The Summer Jazz Series continues with the Allan Harris Quartet featuring the music of Nat King Cole and Eddie Jefferson.

The outstanding and internationally renowned vocalist, guitarist and composer Allan Harris sums up his personal perspective on music in clear and straight forward terms: “There is nothing that I have found that defines and gives credence to my place in this wild and mysterious universe than this thing called music.”

Over the past 20 years, Harris has steadily developed his reputation as one of the finest vocalists of his era. In addition to his recordings, he has performed on a worldwide stage that has taken him to prestigious international festivals and halls in Europe, the Middle East and Asia, as well as the 2012 Olympics in London. At home, he has toured nationally at festivals and top venues, including New York’s Lincoln Center and Washington, D.C.’s Kennedy Center. He has received numerous awards, including the New York Nightlife Award for “Outstanding Jazz Vocalist” (which he won three times), the Backstage Bistro Award for “Ongoing Achievement in Jazz,” the Harlem Speaks “Jazz Museum of Harlem Award,” and the Down Beat Critic’s Poll Award for “Rising Star Vocalist.”

Tickets are $30 in advance, and $35 at the door.
