Yoko Miwa Trio @ JazzFest Falmouth
When: Sun Sep 29th
4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Where: JazzFest Falmouth | Highfield Hall | 56 Highfield Drive | Falmouth
Renowned jazz pianist Yoko Miwa appears at historic Highfield Hall in Falmouth. A native of Kobe, Japan, pianist Yoko Miwa was voted Best Jazz Act in Boston in 2012. Early classical training gave way to jazz as she honed her skills working as an accompanist in Japanese jazz clubs. In 1995, Miwa auditioned for a scholarship to the Berklee College of Music, won first place, and moved to Boston where she formed a strong bond with Kevin Mahogany, who chose her as his accompanist. After graduating from Berklee, where she is now an assistant professor, Miwa formed her own trio in 2000. With five CDs to their credit, the trio plays to shows in NYC and Boston, and their latest CD, Live at Scullers Jazz Club, was chosen among the Best CDs of 2011 by JazzTimes. The trio plays straight ahead jazz standards, original compositions, contemporary jazz, and sometimes a Beatles tune for good measure. Tickets are $20 for Highfield Hall members and $25 for non-members. See JazzFestFalmouth.org for tickets and info.
