Event

Billy Contreras SOLO at Point Richmond Jazz
I first met Billy Contreras in 1998 as an eleven year old youngster at Mark O'Connor's Fiddle Camp in his home town of Nashville Tennessee. He was already an astonishing young fiddle player improvising on Paganini Caprices and sitting on th Camp stoop trading licks with the late iconic fiddle player/song writer, John Hartford, who just sat back amazed by the young talent in front of him.

Billy has continued to mature, and any violinist who has encountered him simply shakes their head in amazement. Billy was lucky enough to have been mentored by the very best, from the legendary Nashville session fiddler, Buddy Spicher to jazz icon, David Baker to classical phenom, Rachel Barton-Pine. He has recorded with them all

Getting Billy to come and present at Point Richmond Jazz has been an ideal of mine since starting Point Richmond Jazz 6 years ago. He's coming right after Christmas, so if you know ANYone who has ANY interest in the state of the art jazz violin improvisation, this is THE best gift they will EVER receive!

Don't miss this show!
