Jamie Cullum

Jamie Cullum

is a celebrated musician the world over with loyal fans in every corner of the globe. Over the last 18 years his legendary live shows have seen him perform at festivals alongside artists as diverse as Herbie Hancock, Kendrick Lamar, St Vincent and Lang Lang. In addition to his enduringly successful recording career, with eight albums under his belt and number nine about to arrive, he has also established himself as a multi-award-winning music broadcaster. Jamie approaches all aspects of his career, as he has from the beginning, as both a fan and a student with seemingly boundless creativity and enthusiasm. Half a lifetime ago he used his student loan to record his first LP, »Heard It All Before«. Since those days the mix of talent, luck and sheer hard graft has been a constant feature of Jamie’s career. The success of his major label breakthrough »Twentysomething« and its follow up »Catching Tales« saw him nominated for a »Brit«, »Grammy« and numerous other awards around the world, but the most important outcome of the five years he spent in the tireless promotion of these records is an enviable live career that is truly global. Cullum’s world tour took in over forty countries. Jamie has even become the guest director of some of his favourite festivals, producing extraordinary shows such as orchestral specials at the Royal Albert Hall for two BBC Proms, the Hollywood Bowl with the LA Philharmonic and a night of Jazz and Drum ’n’ Bass at The Forum in London. Jamie is also enjoyed by myriad radio listeners on his globally syndicated radio show. Based in jazz, but dipping into the world of hip-hop, electronic music and beyond, the show features music, interviews and live sessions. It initially airs on BBC Radio 2 and has garnered over a dozen awards since its debut in 2010. Still Jamie manages to share his time across other projects including the »Mercury Music Prize«, for which he is a judge, and charities that help promote music to young people, in addition to working with In House Records, which uses music in the rehabilitation of offenders. Jamie was also delighted to be asked to record a song for the BBC’s »Children In Need« television fundraising campaign.

Danish String Quartet

Among today’s many exceptional chamber music groups, the Danish String Quartet continuously asserts its preeminence. The Quartet’s playing reflects impeccable musicianship, sophisticated artistry, exquisite clarity of ensemble, and, above all, an expressivity inextricably bound to the music, from Haydn to Shostakovich to contemporary scores. Their performances bring a rare musical spontaneity, giving audiences the sense of hearing even treasured canon repertoire as if for the first time, and exuding a palpable joy in music-making that have made them enormously in-demand on concert stages throughout the world.

Since its debut in 2002, the Danish String Quartet has demonstrated a special affinity for Scandinavian composers, from Nielsen to Hans Abrahamsen, alongside music of Mozart and Beethoven. The Quartet’s musical interests also encompass Nordic folk music, the focus of its newest recording, Last Leaf, on the ECM label. The recipient of many awards and prestigious appointments, including the Borletti Buitoni Trust, the Danish String Quartet was named in 2013 as BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artists and appointed to the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center’s CMS Two Program.

Pape Diouf

Pape Diouf

Born in 1973 in Dakar, Pape Cheikh Diouf is from a »guewel« (griot) family originally of the Siné-Saloum Delta region in southwestern Senegal. As a youth, he was sent to his uncle’s house to learn the plumbing trade. But his passion was music, which he pursued in his spare time and ultimately decided was his path to follow. Along with his enormous talent, Pape Diouf is known and admired for representing certain human and social values that are central to Senegalese culture. His captivating sound and charismatic performance have inspired references to »the new Youssou Ndour«. Now that Ndour is Minister of Tourism and no longer performs, Pape Diouf is seen as the likely successor to the master of »mbalax«. Even in his movements and vocal style, Pape emulates his idol, who in turn has called him »the future of Senegalese music«. In 1995, at the age of 22, he joined the Lemzo Diamono Group, where his talent became widely recognized. After going solo in 1998, several frustrating years passed before his first album »Live au Biddew« (Tribu/Lampe Fall, 2003), and an U.S. tour. It was then that Pape Diouf met Mamadou »Jimi« Mbaye, lead guitarist of Youssou Ndour’s band Super Étoile de Dakar, who helped him record and produce »Partir!« (Jololi, 2004), opening the door to a promising career. It was also the launch of Pape Diouf et la Génération Consciente, his band which has now been together for more than 18 years. Since then he has released many highly succesfull albums and toured around the world. His newest album »Enjoy!« was released in 2018. Pape Diouf has emerged as one of the most important voices in contemporary Senegalese music. More than just a prolific hit maker, he draws on his family’s »guewel« traditions to sing about love, life lessons and the Wolof ideal of »teranga«: mutual respect, acceptance and hospitality that’s at the core of Senegalese life.

Mojca Erdmann

Mojca Erdmann

Praised by critics and loved by audiences for her beauty of tone and impeccable artistry, soprano Mojca Erdmann is a star in the international music scene. She is known for her broad repertoire – ranging from baroque to contemporary music – with which she performs in major opera houses, festivals and concert halls worldwide.

The season 2020/21 focusses on some highly fascinating works: Mojca Erdmann kicks off the season with Luca Francesconi’s two-person piece »Quartett«, based on the play of the eponymous piece by Heiner Müller. The German version premieres under the direction of Daniel Barenboim at the Staatsoper Unter den Linden Berlin, where the soprano can also be experienced as Seele in Frank Widmann’s »Babylon« at the end of the season. She makes her debut as Klara/Therese in a new production of Roman Haubenstock-Ramatis »Amerika«, based on the novel of Franz Kafka at the Zurich Opera House. The soprano’s versatility is also evident on the concert stage: Mojca Erdmann can be heard in 2020/21, initially with Mozart arias together with the Akademie für Alte Musik as part of the Mozartwoche on Tour in the Pierre Boulez Hall in Berlin, with Bach’s Christmas Oratorio in the Leipzig Gewandhaus and as Barmherzigkeit in Mozart’s »Die Schuldigkeit des ersten Gebots« in the closing concert of the Salzburger Mozartwoche. Mozart takes Mojca Erdmann to Oslo before returning to the Boulez Hall in Berlin twice: with Schoenberg’s »Pierrot Lunaire« under the baton of Thomas Guggeis and with Crumb’s »Ancient Voices of Children« conducted by Zubin Mehta. The soprano also performs Richard Strauss’ »Vier letzte Lieder« with the Hof Symphony Orchestra for the first time.

Mojca Erdmann regularly appears in concerts and recitals around the world – for example at the Schubertiade in Vilabertran and in the Berlin Boulezsaal, where she made her debut in 2018 with a Schubert evening. She is a regular guest in Japan and gives sold-out recitals for example in Tokyo with harpist Xavier de Maistre, pianists Götz Payer and Malcolm Martineau and tours with the Bach Collegium Japan. She sings in prestigious concert halls such as the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam, the Elbphilharmonie Hamburg, the Philharmonies in Cologne and Berlin, the Alte Oper Frankfurt, the Musikverein and the Konzerthaus in Vienna, at the Schubertiade Schwarzenberg, the Tonhalle Zurich, Jones Hall of the Houston Symphony or the Berlin Konzerthaus. Mojca Erdmann has appeared repeatedly at the Salzburg Mozart Week, the Kissinger Summer, with the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra or the Munich Philharmonic. In 2019 she appeared in concert performances of »Fidelio« with the NHK Symphony Orchestra under Paavo Järvi in Tokyo. At the renowned Enescu Festival in Bucharest Mojca Erdmann sang a Mozart programme together with Rolando Villazón before she interpreted Schoenberg’s »Erwartung« for the first time on tour with the Basque National Orchestra in Northern Spain. In Örebro she made her debut with the Swedish Chamber Orchestra and sang orchestra songs by Richard Strauss with the Heidelberg Philharmonic Orchestra.

An unusually versatile performer, Mojca Erdmann is much sought after for her interpretation of contemporary music: She made her debut with the Berlin Staatsoper in the world premiere of »Takemitsu – My Way of Life«, conducted by Kent Nagano. In 2009, she performed the title role in Wolfgang Rihm’s monodrama »Proserpina«.

Mojca Erdmann can be heard on many recordings, including an acclaimed version of Mahler’s Symphony No 4 with the Bamberg Symphony Orchestra under Jonathan Nott released by Tudor and in Ravel’s »L’enfant et les sortilèges« with the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra under Sir Simon Rattle, released by Sony. In 2009, the soprano signed an exclusive agreement with Deutsche Grammophon, with the first solo recording, »Mozart´s Garden«, featuring arias by Mozart and his contemporaries, having been released in 2011. She can be heard as Zerlina and Despina respectively on Deutsche Grammophon’s recently released complete recordings of »Don Giovanni« and »Così fan tutte«, both conducted by Yannick Nézet-Séguin.

Asya Fateyeva

With her innovative programmes and exceptional skill, Asya Fateyeva is making the saxophone a new focus in the world of music. With classical training and multiple awards under her belt, Asya Fateyeva loves to explore a wide range of styles and periods together with musicians from the areas of classical and jazz music.

Born on the Crimean peninsula, Asya Fateyeva dedicates her artistic efforts to a broad repertoire including music from the Baroque, Classical, and Romantic periods in addition to original works for her instrument. At the same time, she continues to expand her repertoire and network of musicians with whom she collaborates, performs and crafts new programmes. In addition to concerts with orchestra and solo recitals, she is also an avid chamber musician. Whether it is an early Baroque programme or Bach’s Goldberg Variations arranged for the violoncello, accordion, and saxophone, music from the 1920s by Erwin Schulhoff and his contemporaries or an encounter between an organ and saxophone – anything is possible. She also has multiple projects featuring jazz and world music. Asya Fateyeva views herself as a musician in touch with multiculturalism, which is also reflected in her work. Her playing combines a wide range of schools and influences.

The classically-trained saxophonist is among the preeminent representatives of her discipline and she has earned numerous accolades. She became the first woman to reach the finals of the renowned international »Adolphe-Sax Competition« in Belgium and received the 3rd prize. That same year, the »Süddeutsche Zeitung« music critic Harald Eggebrecht wrote the following: »The young Asya Fateyeva plays alto saxophone with such elegance and confidence that the beauty of her exceptional sound in Debussy’s Rhapsodie for Saxophone and Piano is sure to captivate anyone.«

Asya Fateyeva performs with various orchestras such as the MDR Symphony Orchestra under Kristjan Järvi, the Wiener Symphoniker under Vladimir Fedoseyev in Vienna’s Musikverein, the Royal Northern Sinfonia under Lars Vogt, the Moscow Virtuosi under Vladimir Spivakov, the Tchaikovsky Symphony Orchestra of Moscow Radio, the Bochumer Symphoniker, the Wuhan Philharmonic Orchestra, Zurich as well as Stuttgart and Württemberg Chamber Orchestras. Further highlights include performances with orchestras from Bonn, Frankfurt/Oder, and Kassel.

Her concerts at festivals such as those in Colmar, Fermo, Lucerne, Cologne, Moscow, Saint Petersburg, the Dresden Music Festival, Schleswig-Holstein Musik Festival, Festspiele Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, and MDR Musiksommer have garnered widespread praise.

Her training combines the Russian tradition with the classical school of French saxophone. After two years as a junior student under Professor Daniel Gauthier at Cologne’s Hochschule für Musik, Asya Fateyeva, then 17, began formal studies there. Studies in France with Claude Delangle in Paris and Jean-Denis Michat in Lyon, among others, helped shape her artistic development. She completed post-graduate studies in chamber music at Hamburg’s Hochschule für Musik und Theater, where she now teaches classical saxophone.

Hagen Quartet

The Hagen Quartet celebrates its 40th anniversary in the 2020/21 season, with concert programs featuring the ten great string quartets and the clarinet quintet by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, the piano quintets by Dmitri Shostakovich and Robert Schumann, the string quintet by Franz Schubert and the clarinet quintet by Jörg Widmann. This combination of Mozart's quartets and quintets with guest musicians will be performed especially in the concert series of the Hagen Quartet in the Vienna Konzerthaus. This season, the four musicians will tour to London, Brussels, Munich, Berlin, Amsterdam, Wroclaw, Barcelona, Madrid, Turin, Hamburg, the Schubertiade in Schwarzenberg, the Salzburg Festival and the Lucerne Festival, to name but a few cities and festivals.

The Hagen Quartet will travel again to the United States and Japan. The Hagen Quartet’s unprecedented 3 1/2-decade career began in 1981. Its early years, marked by a series of prizes in chamber music competitions and an exclusive recording contract with Deutsche Grammophon that was to produce around forty-five recordings over the following twenty years, enabled the group to work its way through the immensely vast repertoire for string quartet in which this ensemble’s distinctive profile has emerged. Subsequent recordings for myrios classics with Brahms' Clarinet Quintet together with Jörg Widmann and with Mozart's string quartets were highly praised by the international press and received prizes such as the »ECHO Klassik« in Germany and the »Diapason d’Or« in France. In 2019 a recording with the 3rd string quartet and the piano quintet by Brahms together with Kirill Gerstein has been released and in autumn 2020 a recording with the Clarinet Quintets of Mozart and Jörg Widmann (first recording). In January 2019, the Hagen Quartet was awarded the »Concertgebouw Prijs« for the artistic appeal it has radiated over many years and the contribution it has made to the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam. Collaborations with artistic personalities such as György Kurtág and the late Nikolaus Harnoncourt are as important to the Hagen Quartet as its concert appearances with performers including Maurizio Pollini, Mitsuko Uchida, Krystian Zimerman, Heinrich Schiff, Jörg Widmann, Kirill Gerstein, Sol Gabetta, Gautier Capuçon and Igor Levit. The ensemble’s concert repertoire and discography feature attractive and intelligently arranged programmes embracing the entire history of the string quartet genre, from its pre-Haydn beginnings right through to Kurtág. The Hagen Quartet also works closely with composers of its own generation: not only reviving existing works, but also commissioning and premiering new pieces. Recently, Myrios Classics released a recording featuring Brahms’ String Quartet No. 3 and his Piano Quintet, with Kirill Gerstein as guest pianist.

Many young string quartets regard the Hagen Quartet as a model in terms of sound quality, stylistic variety, ensemble playing and serious commitment to the works and composers of the genre. As teachers and mentors at the Salzburg Mozarteum and the Hochschule in Basel, as well as in international masterclasses, the quartet’s members pass on their great wealth of experience to younger colleagues. The Hagen Quartet plays on old Italian master Instruments.

La Folia Barockorchester

La Folia Barockorchester

In the Baroque age, the term »la folia« stood for boldness, wildness, enthusiasm and lust, as well as an artistic attitude of freedom and exuberant creativity. Since its foundation in 2007, La Folia Barockorchester has revived the international music scene on historical instruments with these very attributes, literally causing a sensation. Whether with chamber music or late Baroque opulence, with instrumental music or in collaboration with vocal and instrumental soloists – the young ensemble, together with its founder and artistic director Robin Peter Müller, always stands for vital and rousing interpretations of 17th and 18th centuries’ music.

Historically informed, the musicians of La Folia Barockorchester are looking for ways to bring the emotions and content of past centuries to life in the present. Liveliness, pictoriality, joy in playing, but also respect for music and the certainty of its intense impact are views of the Baroque period, which as an insight underpin the interpretations of this ensemble.

In just a few years, La Folia Barockorchester has enthused audience and press alike. The ensemble performed with great success at international renowned concert venues such as Berliner and Kölner Philharmonie, the Herkulessaal and Prinzregententheater München, the Laieszhalle Hamburg, the Stadtcasino Basel as well as the Musikverein Wien and Graz. It also performed at the International Opera Festival in Bydgoszcz (Poland), the Göttingen International Handel Festival, the Würzburg Mozart Festival, the Festival Oude Muziek Utrecht, the Innsbrucker Festwochen der Alten Musik, the Musikfest Bremen, the Dresden Music Festival, the Al Bustan Festival Beirut, the Rheingau Musikfestival, and the Grafenegg Festival among many others.

In addition to regular live productions for the BBC, BR, NDR and MDR, La Folia Barockorchester is exclusively recording for the label Deutsche Harmonia Mundi / SONY. Since 2014, the ensemble has recorded a remarkable number of CDs that have won prestigious awards such as the »OPUS KLASSIK«. Highlights of the 2021/22 season include performances at the Festival Europäische Wochen Passau, the Herrenchiemsee Festival, the MDR Musiksommer, the Konzerthaus Dortmund, a tour and recording with Handel’s »Messiah« with the Windsbach Boys’s Choir as well as a recording with Anna Prohaska focusing on music of mankind’s pandemic times over the last 400 years.

Following the tradition of great masters such as Rachmaninov, Busoni and Enescu, Mustonen combines the roles of his musicianship as composer, pianist and conductor in an equal balance that is quite exceptional. During an illustrious career spanning 35 years, Mustonen has brought his extraordinary musical insight to many of world’s most significant musical centres, whether it be in a triple role or as soloist, conductor, recitalist or chamber musician. His intelligence and inspiring presence have led him towards many close musical connections with some of today’s most eminent musicians, and appearances with orchestras such as the Berlin Philharmonic, New York and Los Angeles Philharmonic orchestras, Royal Concertgebouw Orkest, Orchestre de Paris and all the London orchestras. Mustonen’s life as a composer is at the heart of his piano playing and conducting. He has a deeply held conviction that each performance must have the freshness of a first performance, so that audience and performer alike encounter the composer as a living contemporary. As a conductor, Mustonen has worked with all the major Finnish orchestras and many more around the globe. In recent years, Mustonen has conducted the world premieres of both of his large-scale orchestral works: Symphony No.1 »Tuuri« with the Tampere Philharmonic in 2012; and Symphony No.2 »Johannes Angelos« with the Helsinki Philharmonic in 2014.

Anne-Sophie Mutter

Anne-Sophie Mutter

is a musical phenomenon: for more than 45 years the virtuoso has now been a fixture in all the world’s major concert halls, making her mark on the classical music scene as a soloist, mentor and visionary.

The four-time »Grammy Award« winner is equally committed to the performance of traditional composers as to the future of music: so far she has given world premieres of 28 works – Unsuk Chin, Sebastian Currier, Henri Dutilleux, Sofia Gubaidulina, Witold Lutosławski, Norbert Moret, Krzysztof Penderecki, Sir André Previn, Wolfgang Rihm, Jörg Widmann and John Williams have all composed for Anne-Sophie Mutter.

She dedicates herself to supporting tomorrow’s musical elite and numerous benefit projects. Furthermore, the board of trustees of the German cancer charity »Deutsche Krebshilfe« elected her the new president of the non-profit organization in 2021.

The two charitable institutions »Association of Friends of the Anne-Sophie Mutter Foundation e.V.« and Anne-Sophie Mutter Foundation provide support for the scholarship recipients, support which is tailored to the fellows’ individual needs. Since 2011, Anne-Sophie Mutter has regularly shared the spotlight on stage with her ensemble of fellows, Mutter’s Virtuosi.

For the 2021/22 season, an extensive European tour with Mutter’s Virtuosi has been scheduled, during which the work »Gran Cadenza« for two violins, which Anne-Sophie Mutter commissioned from Unsuk Chin, is to be given its world premiere. The Brahms Double Concerto will be performed by Anne-Sophie Mutter and Pablo Ferrández with the Czech Philharmonic, conducted by Manfred Honeck. She will also tour with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra under Vasily Petrenko, playing Sir André Previn’s Violin Concerto, also dedicated to her. In Asia, works by John Williams from the »Across the Stars« project feature on the programme – in collaboration with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra under the baton of David Newman. In the USA, Anne-Sophie Mutter performs Beethoven’s Violin Concerto. Chamber music programmes are also planned, featuring violin sonatas and piano trios by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart with Lambert Orkis and Maximilian Hornung; further recitals with her long-standing piano partner will focus on works by Beethoven, Franck and Mozart. During a chamber music tour with current and former fellows of her foundation, various ensembles will perform Beethoven’s String Quartet in G-major Op. 18 No. 2, Haydn’s String Quartet in E-flat-major Op. 20 No. 1 as well as Widmann’s »Studie über Beethoven«, which she gave the world premiere of in Tokyo on February 22, 2020.

Mutter's Virtuosi

For years, Anne-Sophie Mutter has been performing together with various scholarship students of her foundation – in order to familiarise them with the life of a professional musician and to introduce them to a broader audience. In the spring of 2011 she started the additional project Mutter‘s Virtuosi: this ensemble under the violinist’s artistic leadership consists of current and former scholarship holders of the Anne-Sophie Mutter Foundation as well as selected other young musicians. On their tours through Europe, North America and Asia, Mutter‘s Virtuosi regularly introduce their audience to new works; benefit concerts are also a fixed part of every tour programme. Furthermore, the soloists’ ensemble can now be heard on recordings and video.

The first tour in 2011 featured stops in eleven European cities. The programme included Mendelssohn’s Octet for Strings Op. 20, Vivaldi’s »Four Seasons« and a work commissioned by the Anne-Sophie Mutter Foundation from Krzysztof Penderecki: »Duo concertante per violino e contrabbasso«. As part of this tour, Mutter’s Virtuosi played two benefit concerts: one for the Hanna and Paul Gräb Foundation which supports people with handicaps, and one for the Swiss Multiple Sclerosis Society. »It is important to me that our scholarship students realise their social responsibility as artists,« says Anne-Sophie Mutter. »Music is a gift for everyone, a possibility to share feelings regardless of your background, to do something meaningful and serve society as a musician.«

Anne-Sophie Mutter’s club performances at Berlin’s »Neue Heimat« in May 2015 saw her Virtuosi on stage with her for Vivaldi’s »Four Seasons« and the Bach Double Concerto. Deutsche Grammophon and the ZDF television channel were the local co-producers, recording the event which is now available on CD, Vinyl, DVD and Blu-ray Disc. »I really wanted to share the stage with my Virtuosi,« says Anne-Sophie Mutter. »They are an integral part of my life with the ideal of what one can do with music in society. Ultimately the point is that music allows us to truly encounter other people, that it builds bridges not only between generations, but between different cultures which we have constructed; it transcends religious and sometimes dogmatic walls we have erected between us.«

The seventh tour takes Anne-Sophie Mutter and her soloists’ ensemble Mutter’s Virtuosi to numerous European cities in October and November 2021. The programmes feature the world premiere of the »Gran Cadenza« for two Violins which Anne-Sophie Mutter commissioned from Unsuk Chin, complemented by Mozart’s String Quintet in E-flat-major K. 614, Vivaldi’s Concerto for Four Violins in B-minor Op. 3 No. 10 RV 580, as well as his »Four Seasons«. Twelve string players and Knut Johannessen at the harpsichord will perform under Anne-Sophie Mutter’s leadership.

Singers

Aoife O'Donovan

Aoife O'Donovan

Called »a vocalist of unerring instinct« by the »New York Times«, Aoife O’Donovan is one of the most sought after vocalists and songwriters of her generation and her career has allowed her to collaborate with some of the most eminent names in music across a wide variety of genres. The most recent example is I’m With Her, the band comprised of Sara Watkins, Sarah Jarosz and O’Donovan. Their debut album »See You Around«, released in February 2018, has garnered praise from »NPR«, who instantly hailed the collection as »willfully open-hearted«, and »The Guardian« called their sound both »ethereal and purposeful«. As a solo artist, O’Donovan has released two studio albums. »In the Magic Hour« (2016), a 10-song album full of the singer’s honeyed vocals mixed with gauzy, frictionless sounds: splashing cymbals, airy harmonies, and the leisurely baritone musings of an electric guitar. »Mojo« described the record as »exhilarating and exploratory«, while the »New York Times« named »The King of All Birds« one of the Best Songs of 2016. Aoife toured 2016 in support of the album and ended that year releasing a live album »Man In A Neon Coat: Live From Cambridge« with her touring band. Her debut solo album, 2013’s »Fossils«, is a moody collection of original songs with a country lilt. The record received critical acclaim and was featured on a number of »Best of 2013« lists including »NPR Music«, »American Songwriter«, »New York Magazine«, and »No Depression«. O’Donovan spent the preceding decade as co-founder and lead singer of the band Crooked Still, and as a featured vocalist on »The Goat Rodeo Sessions«, the Grammy-winning album by Yo-Yo Ma, Stuart Duncan, Edgar Meyer and Chris Thile. Throughout her career, she has also collaborated with artists such as Alison Krauss and jazz trumpeter Dave Douglas, and is currently a member of the house band on the radio variety show »Live From Here«. Spring 2020 will bring a new program from Aoife entitled »Songs and Strings« where, alongside a string quartet, she will perform the song cycle »Bull Frogs Croon«. Written and developed with Jeremy Kittel and Teddy Abrams, the piece uses stunning text by the late and former Poet Laureate of Oregon, Peter Sears, which premiered in 2015 at the Britt Festival. The remainder of the evening will mix songs from her expansive career with a few traditional favorites.
