An exuberant, multi-talented fiddle and piano virtuoso in many musical styles, as well as the possessor of a lovely singing voice and a stage presence like a ray of sunshine, Barbara Higbie's music combines technical brilliance and pure joie de vivre.

In tonight's multi-faceted show, Barbara performs material old and new, backed by an impressive selection of fabulous guests, including soulful songstress Teresa Trull, piano virtuoso Katrina Krimsky, saxophonist George Brooks, accordion master Julie Wolf, drummer Celso Alberti, percussionist Michaelle Goerlitz, and bassist Dewayne Pate.

Barbara's rich background includes classical piano and violin studies, immersion in the musical culture of Ghana, ground-breaking work with the jazz-folk-bluegrass band Montreux and with Terry Riley, and acclaimed collaborations with singer Teresa Trull. Her unique compositions bring together jazz, folk, classical, African, Brazilian, and Celtic elements to create music that is lyrical, rhythmically playful, and harmonically inventive. Barbara's most recent solo CD is a collection of instrumental piano pieces, Variations on a Happy Ending.

Seattle singer and comedian Lisa Koch opens the show.
