The Blackbird Quartet met for the first time in the summer of 2018 at the Marlboro Music Festival. Blackbird derives from the members’ penchant for good donuts found at the one and only Blackbird Doughnuts. The members of The Blackbird Quartet started working intensively together in September 2018 with Miriam Fried and Paul Biss and have performed in venues around Boston such as the Keller Room and the Union Club.
