An exuberant virtuoso on numerous instruments 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 combines technical brilliance and pure joie de vivre in her music.

Tonight's solo show gives the multi-faceted Barbara a chance to shine forth with her talents on piano, fiddle, guitar, and ukulele, as she performs material old and new, including selections from her upcoming CD.

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.
