The Oxford American magazine will present Jazz trumpter/singer/songwriter Bria Skonberg at South on Main on March 17, 2016. Doors open at 6:00 PM, with dinner and drinks available.
A specialist in classic American hot jazz, Skonberg expands the vocabulary and traditions of Louis Armstrong and Sidney Bechet with worldly rhythms and modern jazz variance. Her US debut album "So Is The Day" peaked at #7 on the National Jazz Charts, and featured original compositions and NOLA inspired stylistic fusions.
Skonberg has been awarded the Jazz At Lincoln Center Swing! Award (2015), DownBeat Magazine Rising Star (2013-15), The New York Bistro Awards Outstanding Jazz Artist (2014), Hot House Magazine Best Vocal, Best Trumpet (2014-15), a nominee for Jazz Journalists' Association Up and Coming Artist (2013), and more. She is an educator, Co-Director/Co-Founder of the New York Hot Jazz Camp, and Co-Founder of the New York Hot Jazz Festival (2012).
