Acclaimed jazz and blues singer Catherine Russell, hot off her Grammy Award win, headlined JazzFest Falmouth on Cape Cod, Saturday, October 4th.
Russell, renowned as one of the foremost interpreters of mid-20th
century American music, is that rarest of entities – a genuine jazz and
blues singer – who can sing virtually anything. Russell has performed
with David Bowie, Cyndi Lauper, Paul Simon, Michael Feinstein, Steely
Dan, Rosanne Cash, and many others before launching her 2006 debut album
Cat to critical acclaim. Three albums later she received a
Grammy for her appearance as a featured artist on the soundtrack album
for the hit HBO series Boardwalk Empire. Her latest album, Bring it Back, released in February 2014 received a rave Five Star review from Downbeat Magazine and has consistently topped the charts.
