Kendrah Butler/Rhenda Fearrington - Women In Jazz Showcase

Pianist, composer and violinist Kendrah E. Butler lives and breaths music. She studied jazz piano with Don Wilson, Kenny Gates, and the late, great jazz pianist Eddie Green. As a notable musical director, Butler has led many Jazz and R&B groups including but not limited to "nVizion" an all female jazz group. Rhenda Fearrington always delivers an authentic and warm presentation of jazz standards mixed with soulful originals on stage. She is true to her roots which includes performing on the international stage as a back-up singer for Roberta Flack and MTUME, respectively! On this evening, the musical collaborative sisterhood of Butler and Fearrington will astonish you with tunes that have delighted audiences worldwide.
