The show also features music by the Copper Cats with Jerry Younce on guitar, Bill Carrothers on piano, Harry South on bass and Zach Ott on percussion; poetry by Martin Achatz, the Poet Laureate of the Upper Peninsula, and comedy by the Red Jacket Actors.
Jennifer Barnett is a rising star within the Jazz World. The Michigan native is studying vocal Jazz Performance at the New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music in New York. For the past two years, she has been named one of the country's top young Jazz vocalists by Down Beat Magazine. Not yet 20, Jennifer has been performing in Jazz, Pop and Rock ensembles since she was 12. The Red Jacket Jamboree is very excited to introduce you to this rising star!
Younce Guitar Duo takes listeners on a sonic journey woven together by elements of Jazz, Latin, Celtic and other world rhythms. The collaboration between father and son guitar virtuosos, has led to their distinct sound and exquisite original compositions. A Younce Guitar Duo performance both moves and exhilarates!
