Appleton, Minn. - Renowned jazz artist Nancy Harms, a native of Clara City, Minn., will be featured on Pioneer Public Television's weekly program Postcards Sunday, May 27 at 7:00 p.m.
"Nancy Harms gives a sultry, moody performance with two vocalists and a bassist in which you will witness jazz like you've never seen before," said Dana Johnson, executive producer.
Nancy Harms joins us from Willmar's Barn Theater and talks about her unique upbringing in Clara City and her experiences with legendary jazz musicians as well as the long path of taking her jazz vocals to the next level. Get an exclusive look at her intimate performance and hear the deep, smooth vocals that have captured so many across the nation.
Harms had little exposure to jazz music growing up. It was only when she went off to college that she discovered a passion that would change her life. A few years after graduating from college, she moved to Minneapolis, where she immersed herself in the local jazz scene. By 2006 she had gained notariety in the world of jazz both in Minnesota and on the East Coast, where Harms has been dubbed "one of the most uniquely gifted new jazz vocalists" by Arne Fogel, vocalist, historian, broadcaster on KBEM-FM 88.5 FM in Minneapolis.
