Marika Hughes

A Juilliard-trained cellist whose music incorporates classical, jazz and experimental, Marika Hughes fronts the funky band Bottom Heavy. A granddaughter of Emanuel Feuermann, one of the 20th sentury's greatest cellists and a Holocaust refugee, Hughes grew up on The Upper West Side, a regular on Sesame Street. 

Hughes will be in residence every Saturday in January. This week: Dana Lyn on piano. Both ladies share a retirement plan dream - to have a lounge act upstate somewhere. The two will play pieces they have written together, inspired by the disappearing islands around the world due to climate change. And on the lighter side, they will play some Jazz Standards, to prepare for their retire plan.

“Marika Hughes makes a joyful noise at the intersection of classical, jazz and experimental avenues on her solo outing . . . In her hands the sound melts with the warm tones and disciplined approach . . . her varied arsenal of sound, textures and approach is on display here, as is her voice . . . she croons an infectious blues.” — Mark Corroto, All About Jazz
