Regina Carter is considered one of the most prolific contemporary jazz violinists.

A MacArthur Foundation Genius Grant recipient, she has a discography that draws upon a wide range of musical influences from Motown to Folk, and now her Southern roots, with her latest album Southern Comfort.

"[Southern Comfort] is about my journey of trying to learn about my father's family and search for my ancestors to find out where I come from," Carter explains in a recent interview with Central Standard's Matthew Long-Middleton.

Carter performed at Kauffman Center on March 23, 2014 as part of her Southern Comfort Tour.
