Percussionist Kobie Watkins will headline the Winter Jazz Festival. Backing up Watkins will be the BYU-Idaho Sound Alliance jazz ensemble. A native of Chicago, Watkins began as a small child listening and watching his father, Alious C. Watkins, playing the drums in church. Kobie Watkins has progressed into who he is today--a professional drummer and musical educator.
Tickets cost $6 for BYU-Idaho Students/$12 for General Public. Tickets to the original February 8 concert that had to be cancelled due to the illness of Terri Lyne Carrington will be honored at this show.
