Using an instrument that many have owned but few have mastered, Frédéric Yonnet’s musical skills and stage presence wipe out every preconceived notion that you’ve ever had about the harmonica. Regarded for decades as the choice instrument of street musicians and loners who wanted to express themselves through country music or the blues, in Yonnet’s hands the harmonica becomes something else entirely: a lead voice in urban jazz, R&B and hip-hop. With a sound that funks, rocks, grooves, sways and testifies, it’s little wonder this one-of-a-kind artist is in demand as a sideman for such stars as Stevie Wonder, Prince, Kenny G, Erykah Badu, India.Arie, and John Legend. Yonnet’s fans are many and passionate, so tickets will fly for this intimate show—order yours now.
