Acclaimed pianist Robert Glasper will perform at The Birchmere on Nov. 7. He is a Grammy and Emmy-winning artist. It marks his first time back to the D.C. area since the March on Washington on Aug. 28, where he performed alongside Derrick Hodge and George Clinton.
Glasper said, "My mom was a singer. She would sing at an R&B club, at a funk club, at a jazz club, she even sang country music. Literally one day a week she would sing at a barn. … On Sundays, she was the minister of music at the church, so in my house, you never knew what my mom was going to be playing. … She was a musical mutt."
As per wtop.com, "Born in Houston, Texas, in 1978, Glasper grew up in a musical family. He attended a performing arts high school and applied to college music programs. He ultimately chose New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music in New York City, where he met neo-soul singer Bilal Oliver, his collaborator for the rest of his career. Pretty soon, they found themselves in a legit recording studio making magic."
