Turtle Island, the double GRAMMY winning quartet that has re-defined chamber jazz for over twenty five years, is joined by the great jazz vocalist Tierney Sutton in a series of concerts that answers the simple question: What inspires us?

The Turtle Island Quartet has been hailed by The Washington Post for their "excellent precision and musicality." With numerous awards, including two GRAMMY's, and major appearances in the great concert halls of the world, the Turtle Island Quartet continues their long history of collaborations with outstanding guest artists.
