The Bowfire ensemble of world-renowned musicians will make a stop 7:30 p.m. Sunday, March 18, at the Flagler Auditorium, 5500 State Road 100. The ensemble of 10 violin transitions from jazz to classical to bluegrass to Celtic to rock and world.
Over three decades and on five continents, Lenny Solomon, Bowfire’s founder and artistic director, has built a strong reputation as one of the world's most skilled and innovative jazz violinists. His three jazz violin album releases, “After You've Gone,” “The Gershwin Sessions,” and “Transparency,” have received critical acclaim.
He was a three-time winner of the annual Violinist Of The Year Award presented by The National Jazz Awards and has appeared as featured guest jazz soloist with many orchestras.
As a member of the pop duo Myles And Lenny in the 1970s, he recorded two albums for Columbia Records, toured widely, and won a JUNO Award.
