AJF Presents: In the Tradition with Kilgore and Dwight Andrews
August 10 @ 7:30 pm
Join us for a fantastic conversation between saxophonist Ryan Kilgore and Emory University professor Dwight Andrews.
An Atlanta native, Ryan Kilgore has been playing the soulful sounds of the saxophone since the age of 10. Being a fourth-generation sax player is just one of Kilgore’s many milestones over his musical career.
Kilgore is also no stranger to the film industry. He has played on the Fighting Temptations soundtrack with vocalist Faith Evans on the song “Heaven Knows” and performed on the Walt Disney movie “Country Bears.” In addition, he has made cameo appearances in 20th Century Fox’s” Drumline,” Paramount Pictures’ “Fighting Temptations,” and Tyler Perry’s “Diary of a Mad Black Woman.”
Kilgore has also worked with legendary producers and songwriters Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis and toured with the phenomenal Stevie Wonder for a decade.
