Regina Carter performs her cover of “See See Rider” at WNYC’s Soundcheck Studio with her Southern Comfort band. Carter’s interpretation of the famous blues song is from her current album of Americana explorations, also named Southern Comfort. The jazz violinist says, that Southern Comfort started as a journey back to her father’s family roots in Alabama and ended up becoming an exploration of the music of The Appalachians created by Native Americans, slaves and European settlers from Scotland and Ireland. The concept of finding her ancestral origins in the music is a continuation of her last album Reverse Thread, which focused on her mother’s side of the family and African folk music. Regina Carter’s tour will resume on April 19th.
