Tina Le & Nat Needle
Nat Needle was born and raised in New York City. He trained in classical piano until age 17. He then devoted himself to the study and performance of African American music from enslavement onward, with a focus on early jazz, blues, swing, r & b, and the emergence of bebop. He has lived in Worcester since 2000 performing piano and vocals at various music venues and out in the community. Since 2013, he has taught piano independently to students ages 5 to seniors.
Born and raised in Vietnam, Tina Le came to Worcester from Vietnam when she was just 12 years old. Her passion for music was the motivation to keep her going despite the troubles she faced. She started to listen to jazz and learned a little about it just 2 years ago. Through connecting with Nat, Tina was able to discover her love for jazz. She and Nat have formed a band along with two other talented musicians Chuck Demers, and Rose Villani.
Irena Kaçi is an Albanian-American writer and poet living in Worcester, with her spouse and two small children. Her hobbies include socializing really well and being kind of funny. She has a degree in Philosophy from Clark University but is an incorrigible optimist. Her claim to fame is surviving the fall of a communist dictatorship. Her weakness is prepping for the next apocalypse.
