Guitarist/composer Joel Harrison reunites his groundbreaking group Free Country to tour the mid-Atlantic and Southern regions of the U.S. The success of the first record, which included a then barely known singer named Norah Jones, brought Harrison acclaim throughout Europe and the U.S.Modern jazz quartet doing adventurous interpretations of country and Appalachian tunes.

We are performing at the White Horse in Black Mountain, North Carolina; down the street from idyllic rivers, woods, and mountains- the site of our Creative Strings Summer retreats.

If you're an amateur/pro musician or teacher looking for something outside of strict classical music,

and you're considering professional development this summer,

The touring band includes a powerful cast, all of whom Harrison has worked with on and off for two decades: Christian Howes (violin), Stephan Crump (bass), and Jordan Perlson (drums). The group will perform music from all three Free Country records. The timeless, haunting melodies of this music anchor the flights of improvisation that the band creates anew every night. The tour is funded in part by South Arts through the auspices of the Doris Duke Fund and the Jazz Road initiative.

A Guggenheim Fellow (2010), Guitarist, composer, and vocalist Joel Harrison’s compositions have been commissioned by Chamber Music America, Meet the 
Composer, New Music USA, and many more. The guitarist has released twenty-two records and was succinctly described by the New York Times as “protean… brilliant.”
