For this fundraiser, I will be pulling from my FULL bag of tricks. I will be playing some solo piano, singing and playing from the piano, performing with my quintet and the newly formed Charlton Singleton Project. Please purchase your tickets now and support this important institution including the newly established Charleston Jazz Academy, which is nurturing the next generation of jazz artists and is so wonderfully run by my good friend (little brother) David Carter! I hope that you will be there! -Charlton Singleton
