Winter Concert Series:
The Winter Concert Series in the Johnson Building at the Central Library in Copley Square, one of Boston's most beautiful spaces, is filled with music during free, one-and-a half-hour Saturday afternoon concerts throughout the winter.
Minnie and Ella Jordan have been playing music together for more than a decade—starting on violin, over the years they have added vocals, guitar and tenor guitar to their repertoire. They hail from rural Texas, and are fluent in the Jazz, Swing, Western Swing, Country, Bluegrass and Classical idioms. They have been performing publicly for many years, and play upwards of 50 gigs a year. Both are currently studying at Berklee College of Music on scholarship.
Minnie is currently enrolled in the Berklee Global Jazz Institute Master’s program, where she is studying under many of her musical heroes such as Danilo Perez, Joe Lovano, John Patitucci, and Terri Lynne Carrington. Ella is making a name for herself in the Bluegrass and New Acoustic scene, and was recently accepted into the Acoustic Music Seminar. Ella was a 2018 recipient of the Fletcher Bright Scholarship, and Minnie was a 2017 recipient of the Sam Eisenson Award for Country Music. They were also the 2014 recipients of the Daniel Pearl Memorial Violins. When not playing violin they enjoy riding horses, rehabilitating waterfowl, reading, and enjoying the great outdoors.
We are grateful to our 2020 Presenting Sponsor Bank of America Charitable Foundation for its generous support of this free music series. Concerts are also presented with the assistance of Berklee College of Music.
This concert will take place in New & Novel on the first floor of the Johnson Building of the Central Library.
