Peg Carrothers Peg Carrothers

My musical background began forming as a young child, learning songs from the family for every season and occasion, and harmonizing out the window with my mother whenever a rainstorm was brewing. It wasn’t uncommon to find me outside on a windy day making up songs and singing them up high into the trees.

I was lucky to have a dedicated school music program in my formative years, which allowed me to explore my talents further with leading roles in choir and musical programs. My love for song led me to later pursue a music degree at St Catherine’s College and finish up at the University of Minnesota, studying in the classical opera tradition before vocal jazz was a developed curriculum.

It was during these early college years that I first met Bill Carrothers, who would change my life forever in many ways, encouraging me to listen to the likes of Frank Sinatra and Billie Holiday. A whole world opened up for me and these voices, along with every sound that enters the heart of what music is, continue to be a great influence and pleasure to explore.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
