Music at the Frist: Billy Contreras and Friends

Billy Contreras has been called “the finest jazz violinist of his time,” performing or recording with a stunning array of notable musicians, including Lionel Hampton, Doc Severinsen, George Jones, Crystal Gayle, Charlie Louvin and Hank Thompson. He has also appeared with the Cincinnati Pops and Nashville Symphony Orchestras. In addition to teaching at Belmont University, Billy leads his own band. It traverses an amalgam of styles, including jazz, country, blues, western swing, rock, and jam. Billy will be joined by a versatile group of his all-star musician friends. The group will perform instrumental arrangements of folk tunes, as well as original music in a style that Billy describes as a mixture of jazz, jam, and bluegrass.
