The Southern undercurrent of the upcoming Mondavi season is manifested in the American Heritage series with the appearance by New Orleans artist Dr. John; also a concert by violinist Regina Carter. Often classified as a jazz violinist, Carter will play a program titled “Southern Comfort” that will include folk songs and spiritual that were popular during the lifetime of her grandfather, who was a coal miner in Alabama.

Folk singer Arlo Guthrie’s concert is also on this series.

There is also a related stand-alone concert featuring a group called the Hot Sardines, who draw on New Orleans-style brass and Fats Waller-style piano.
