Jazz in the City | Darelle Holden

Concert

Sunday, December 15, 2019
2:00 – 4:00 pm

Location
Frye Auditorium

Darelle Holden grew up in Redmond and lives in Seattle. She is the lead singer for 313 Soul, which salutes the music of Motown. Holden’s smooth voice and diverse vocal styling has taken her far in the quarter-century she has been performing. She toured with the venerable Tom Jones, backed Stevie Wonder when he played Key Arena in 2014, and has performed with Earth, Wind and Fire; Elton John; jazz guitarist Norman Brown; Bobby Caldwell; and Ellis Hall among others. She also appeared in the acclaimed movie about backup singers, 20 Feet from Stardom.

A Berklee College of Music graduate, Holden has music in her blood as a member of a family with deep ties to the Seattle music scene. Her grandfather, Oscar Holden, was an influential jazz musician, and her father, Dave, and uncle, Ron, have a respected place in Seattle entertainment history.

Jazz in the City at the Frye Art Museum is a free, bi-monthly performance series produced in partnership with Ariel Media, with a purpose to celebrate the art form of jazz music and its long-standing influence and vibrancy in the city of Seattle. The Frye's First Hill location is adjacent to Seattle’s historic Jackson Street Jazz District: a combination of The Central District and the current International District, which comprised the historic China Town, Japan Town and Filipino Town. The Jackson Street Jazz District nurtured such renowned artists as Quincy Jones, Ray Charles, Ernestine Anderson, and Jimi Hendrix.

This musical program is supported by The Hugh and Jane Ferguson Foundation and the Frye Foundation.
