American Folk Art Museum

Join the American Folk Art Museum each Wednesday afternoon, from 2:00pm to 3:00pm, when jazz guitarist Bill Wurtzel and guests play standards from the American Songbook. Come early, limited seating available. Bill Wurtzel began playing guitar at age 9, and was a radio and TV country music performer by age 12. Bill is a director of the Jazz Foundation of America. 2018 marks Bill’s ninth year performing at the American Folk Art Museum. Jay Leonhart began his musical journey at the age of 7 on piano and percussions at the Peabody School of Music in Baltimore. At age 14, he chose the biggest instrument that he could find—the bass violin—and has since played with many of the major jazz musicians, big bands, pop singers, and jazz groups of this world.
