Music at the Frist: Billy Contreras and Friends

Cafe ~ FREE

Multi-instrumentalist Billy Contreras has been called "the finest jazz violinist of his time," and has performed or recorded with a stunning array of notables, including Lionel Hampton, Doc Severinsen, George Jones, Crystal Gayle, Charlie Louvin and Hank Thompson. He has also appeared with the Cincinnati Pops and Nashville Symphony Orchestras. In addition to teaching at Belmont University, Billy leads his own band that traverses an amalgam of styles including jazz, country, blues, western swing, rock and jam.

As a regular visitor to the museum, Billy often creates special evenings of music that are informed by the art on exhibition in our galleries. 

A Billy Contreras performance in the Frist Cafe is always a unique opportunity to hear this world class master perform with the Nashville avant garde, musicians who transcend genre and defy classification.
