Marika Hughes: The New String Quartet

Feb 17 | Sun | 2PM - 3PM |
View Website

Jazz artist Marika Hughes has returned to her chamber music background with her new project, The New String Quartet. Alongside Charlie Burnham (violin and voice), Marvin Sewell (guitar) and Rashaan Carter (bass), the band sets out to celebrate the sounds, vibrations, and resonances of acoustic, unamplified, raw strings. Rooted in the standards of the western string quartet tradition, The New String Quartet's setlist will also weave throughout Marika's varied musical heritage, from classical and jazz songs to pop music and impromptu sketches. With a selection of songs both old and new, Marika and The New String Quartet tip their hats to love, to loss, to family, and to gratitude. A granddaughter of Emanuel Feuermann, one of the 20th century's greatest cellists and a Holocaust refugee, Hughes grew up on The Upper West Side, a regular on "Sesame Street." Her recent albums include "New York Nostalgia" and she recently toured with Adele.
