Judy Carmichael – piano/vocal, Don Stiernberg* – mandolin, drums, Andy Brown – guitar
*Jazz mandolin? Yes! And Don is considered the best. He studied with the great Jethro Burns and played in his band for years, so he’s steeped in bluegrass which he’ll play in duet with Andy Brown, his longtime collaborator.
Grammy-nominated pianist, singer, songwriter, humorist, radio host, Judy Carmichael is bringing her NPR show and podcast, Judy Carmichael’s Jazz Inspired to the Dixon Historic Theatre, interviewing and performing with her guests, for later broadcast on NPR stations and podcast platforms.

Judy has boldly gone where no jazz radio has gone before and talks with artists from all fields, everyone from actress Blythe Danner (pictured with Judy here at the Tanglewood Music Festival), to Seth MacFarlane, Neil deGrasse Tyson, Chevy Chase and other creative artists who love jazz and have been influenced and inspired by it.
