His concerts span the decades between the 1890s and the 1930s. Perrine is a member of the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma, and through his many years of music, he has been certified as a Choctaw Artist.
He has played at the Michigan Jazz Festival and the Henry Ford Museum & Greenfield Village, among others. And today, he will play a free concert at Michigan Medicine. Look for livestream video on the Gifts of Art Facebook page.
