Port City Trio

port city trio
The PORT CITY TRIO has been pleasing Wilmington audiences for almost 30 years. Kelly and Julia Walker Jewell bring a variety of influences – from Kelly’s early folk and Western swing guitar days to Julia’s more formal classical piano training – to standards and favorites from the Great American Songbook. Although a trio in their early days, they are now a quartet, featuring Brian Mason on drums and Ryan Woodall on bass. Joining this group for our festival is violinist and vocalist, Annie Jewell. Annie was a student in the first educational masterclass held by the NC Jazz Festival. As well as her freelance work, she is a professor of music at Cape Fear Community College, Director of Music at St. Matthews Lutheran Church, and a member of the Wilmington Symphony. She also directs the Girls’ Choir of Wilmington. She received her B.A. in music performance from UNC-Greensboro and her Master of Letters in Sacred Music from St. Andrews University in Scotland.
