This week’s feature:

Jim Burr & Kathy Sommer

Violin & Piano

Jazz, Classical, and more

   Kathy Sommer and Jim Burr have performed together in bands for a decade at many north country functions, exploring traditional and worldly influences on jazz. Both musicians have classical training in their past, so in 2019 they decided to venture out as a duo and include classical pieces along with their jazz and multi-genre performance repertoire. The combination of styles and their tasteful presentation was well received so their establishment as a duo quickly found solid ground. What is so impressive about these two is how their sound meshes beautifully with the vines and fountains of a lush patio or the acoustics and presence of any stage.

   Jim Burr on piano is a sought-out, veteran jazz player in the north country with both an extensive jazz repertoire and a long and vibrant history of jazz performance. Kathy Sommer plays the violin/fiddle, and she is familiar to many in the north country known for her svelte yet dynamic style, versatility of genre, and for playing from the heart.   A classically trained violinist, she is adept in numerous musical styles and both attends and teaches at music camps.

This is a well-seasoned duo. With a natural blend of instruments, the sophistication of Burr’s solos and the flair of Sommer’s fiddling, they produce a refreshingly contemporary sound that is immediately engaging, classy and exciting
