An internationally renowned violinist and composer originally from Copenhagen, Denmark, Mads Tolling now calls San Francisco home. As a former nine-year member of both bassist Stanley Clarke’s band and the celebrated Turtle Island Quartet, Mads won two Grammy Awards, and he was nominated for a third Grammy in 2015. He was the 2016 winner of the DownBeat Critics Poll Rising Star Violin Award. Mads has performed with Chick Corea, Ramsey Lewis, Kenny Barron, Paquito D’Rivera, Leo Kottke and Sergio & Odair Assad. Mads is a current member of Bob Weir’s Wolf Bros & Wolf Pack Band. Mads will be joined for this performance by pianist John R. Burr.
Mads has the amazing talent and skills that few young musicians can match. His music is both beautiful and refreshing, exhibiting his superb mastery of the modern American jazz music that is rarely seen among his peers.”CHOOSE SEATS AND BUY
