The Kierra Sheard Bridges Tour is HERE! We had a blast this past weekend in Cleveland and Los Angeles and are looking forward to Atlanta and Washington, DC these next two weekends. I feel so fortunate to be making such high-caliber music with some of my best friends and some of the greatest musicians I know. It truly is a joy to make music with my brothers every night!

This past week I had the fortune of volunteering at the Solesbury Jazz Camp teaching students from several different high schools across the New Jersey and Pennsylvania area. The week-long camp consisted of instrumental sectionals, ensemble formation, rehearsal, and performance, and instructed sessions on listening, improvisational techniques, and jazz theory.  It was an incredible experience and I can't wait to be back next year! Check out some pictures from the week here.

Next Week @ the Dirty Dog!
