Join us in welcoming back blonde bombshell Judy Carmichael to Highfield

Grammy nominated pianist Judy Carmichael is one of the world’s leading interpreters of stride piano and swing. Count Basie nicknamed her “Stride,” acknowledging the command with which she plays this technically and physically demanding jazz piano style. Ms. Carmichael has performed her music on radio and TV and presented private recitals for everyone from Rod Stewart and Robert Redford to President Clinton and Gianni Agnelli. In addition to her international virtuoso career, she is celebrating her 15th year producing and hosting Judy Carmichael’s Jazz Inspired, a Public Radio Show broadcast on over 170 stations throughout North America and abroad. Bringing along her favorite guitarist, Chris Flory, this musical afternoon at Highfield Hall is a once in a lifetime opportunity.

Judy Carmichael is not only a versatile, exhilarating mainstream jazz pianist, she is also a student (and archivist) of pre-bop keyboard music. Carmichael certainly is among the finest interpreters of Harlem's World War I era two-handed, vamping, striding piano style. But, it is her expanding interest in other mainstream jazz piano styles that has made her a major figure in keyboard jazz performance.
