Emma Pask with Bill Risby
March 7 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Discovered by jazz legend James Morrison at the age of 16, Emma Pask has become one of Australia’s favourite voices in Jazz.
Her effortless honest stage presence, combined with her powerful vocal ability, leaves audiences spellbound and inspired.
Bill Risby studied jazz (piano + double bass) at the NSW Conservatorium of Music and is now regarded as one of the most accomplished musicians in the field having nine albums to his name. He has also performed and collaborated with a raft of leading musicians including The Supremes, The Temptations, Marcia Hines, Spandau Ballet, Dionne Warwick and his piano playing was featured in the films “Australia”, “The Great Gatsby”, as well as being the sound of Peter Allen’s piano in the Australian Tele-movie “Not the Boy Next Door”.
Performing an up close and intimate concert this setting is sure to delight as the duo interweave storytelling through timeless swinging jazz standards, upbeat Latin rhythms, tender ballads and, of course, some raucous blues.
