The Folly Jazz Series presents

Karrin Allyson

Saturday, October 9th at 8 PM

Vocalist, pianist, and songwriter Karrin Allyson is a five-time Grammy Award nominee, originally from Kansas, now living in New York City. Karrin has traveled the globe playing clubs, festivals, performing arts centers, and beyond.

Allyson’s impressive discography culminated in 2018 with the release of Some of That Sunshine, her first collection of all-original tracks and a further testament to her already impressive creative output. Christopher Loudon writes in Jazz Times, “With Some of That Sunshine, Allyson unleashes her equally impressive dexterity as a songwriter.”

With fifteen albums released so far and always more exciting projects in the works, Karrin’s range and creativity seem to have no bounds. What unites this wide world of music is Allyson’s warmth and depth. She’s not just singing a lyric; she’s telling you her story. And then that becomes your story. You hear the music from the inside out.
