Yuri Turchyn

World class, A-list performances and original music by 5-string jazz violinist Yuri Turchyn whose international flair crisscrosses cultures, blending Gypsy Jazz, Afro Cuban, Latin Beat into fusion symmetry and string swing along with his distinctive voice and smooth, melodic vocals. A singer/songwriter, he composes and arranges original music while having a highly visible career as a featured premier performing artist.

An “International Jazz Cat,” Yuri was featured at the West Bloor Street Festival, Toronto and toured with renowned Gypsy jazz, acoustic trio, BARTENDER, performing at the Umbria Folk Festival in Orvieto, Italy returning for several tours to the Umbria-Tuscany area. He performed with Pat Guadagno & Tired Horses at BOBFEST, an annual birthday tribute to Bob Dylan's music; American soul singer, Delores Holmes; produced audio engineered, as well as string arranger–playing violin, lead and bass guitar for the compilation CD release “Juntamente” and “Vida Y Amor” with Joanne Martinez and Paulo Pinho, Teatro Si Productions; and is currently performing with Butch Campbell, Ruben Austin and Richard Cantor, “Mostly Jazz Trio+1.”

Born and raised in Trenton, New Jersey, Yuri began playing violin at age six. He continued into his high school years winning the Mercer County String Competition, then turned to guitar and song writing, learning classical voice techniques with vocal coach, Tom Rexdale, a prominent ragtime piano player and “Professor of Singing” out of Julliard.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings 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 step that will help musicians and venues 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 sticky footer ad). Thank you!
