Andrea Brachfeld and Insight

Saturday, August 28, 7:30pm

Saint James Place, Great Barrington


We’re delighted to be returning to indoors programming with a remarkable program featuring Insight with Andrea Brachfeld. The quartet represents a who’s-who of today’s jazz scene. Headed by the acclaimed award-winning flutist Andrea Brachfeld, Insight includes Bill O’Connell, piano; Harvie S, bass; and Jason Tiemann, drums. The repertoire will feature “If Not Now, When,” Andrea’s original composition, made possible by a New Works grant from Chamber Music America.


Andrea’s first jazz gig was at age 16 when she put a quartet together, wrote her own music, and played at “All Night Soul” at the famed St. Peter’s Church in New York. From that point on, improvisation became a way of life, starting with the Jazzmobile workshops conducted by Dr. Billy Taylor. She has traveled and performed extensively, including Cuba, Croatia, and a 2-and-a-half-year stint in Venezuela. In 2015, she was named the “Best Jazz Flutist” by Hot House Magazine. 


A comfortable, spacious venue, Saint James Place is visually and acoustically outstanding, our favorite new indoors venue in southern Berkshire County. Tickets are $25 in advance, and $30 on the day of the event.

The performance of the Andrea Brachfeld and Insight, presented in collaboration with The Jazz Loft and Riverview, is supported by the Presenter Consortium for Jazz, a program of Chamber Music America, funded through the generosity of the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation
