      Sample Event 1

      When the Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin wants a spectacular vocalist for her private parties, she often calls Ursula Walker and her husband, pianist Buddy Budson.

      Walker has been a mainstay of the Detroit music world for some 60 years, beginning as a child on Detroit TV and radio. Count Basie tried to entice her to join his Orchestra, but family kept her in Detroit, where she’s shared the stage with many top local and national acts. She’s soloed with the Detroit Symphony, and starred at the Detroit Jazz Festival and numerous events with Budson. A top jazz pianist for more than 50 years, Budson has performed with drummer Buddy Rich’s big band, guitarist Earl Klugh, Motown’s Four Tops, and many others.

      Palmer Woods Music in Homes shares Aretha’s great “Respect” for the duo’s powerful talents. They will perform with an all-star ensemble: Marion Hayden on bass, Gayelynn McKinney on drums, and ­A. Spencer Barefield on guitar.

      Join us for a rousing concert at a stately and fabulous home—in a ­majestic room designed for chamber music, surrounded by soaring carved wooden walls and ­facing a bay window stage backdropped with sparkling stained glass.
