Hetty Kate and James Sherlock

Friday November 11, 8:00 - 10:30pm

Nexus Arts
Lion Arts Centre, Corner Morphett St & North Tce, Adelaide

Ticket Price : $25 + booking fee
Ticket Link :
https://www.stickytickets.com.au/44307

Melbourne based vocalist Hetty Kate has been performing for ten years, and in that time she has graced stages from New Zealand to New York; released seven albums; sings for the lindy-hop community across Europe, Asia and Australia; joined James Morrison with his touring bands; and more recently has joined the ABC Jazz stable of vocalists.

Hetty is quite well known to the Southern Jazz Club members where she has performed in the past 24 months twice with Jon Hunt.

Always infusing each performance with spontaneity and fun, Hetty is sometimes compared to a young Peggy Lee, Doris Day or modern-day chanteuse Stacey Kent. She is often lauded by musicians and audiences for what she ‘doesn’t do’ as a jazz singer. Originally trained in classical voice, she swings her way through The Great American Songbook with clarity and diction, always honouring the melody and lyric of these timeless tunes and taking the audience with her for a joyful ride. It is this rare quality that led Mal Stanley (ABC Jazztrack) to invite her to record an album of treasures from the catalogues of June Christy, Julie London and Peggy Lee in 2014. Titled ‘Dim All The Lights’ this album has been released in Australia (ABC Jazz), New Zealand (Universal Music) and Japan (Disk Union).

 Born in Christchurch, New Zealand, James Sherlock is one of Australia’s most captivating and exciting guitarists. He has toured across Australia and internationally, and personal career highlights include performing with the MSO, guitar virtuoso Martin Taylor, Katie Noonan, Sheila Jordan, Kristin Berardi and a long list of Australia’s finest. James won the prestigious ‘Ike Isaacs International Jazz Guitar Award” and was nominated for the Freedman Fellowship. Much in demand as a band-leader and sideman, James can be heard on Hetty Kate's NZ release ‘Dim All The Lights’ and her recent EP ‘Comes Love’.

For this intimate show at Nexus Arts the always entertaining Hetty and James will play a selection of beautiful songs from her album releases, alongside classics and curios from their favourite composers. 

“..a stage presence only matched by the clarity of her voice.” James Morrison AM, Multi-instrumentalist

Zephyr Arrivals

November 17 – November 20, 7:30pm

Friday 18 November, 7:30pm

Sunday 20 November, 5:30pm

 

 South Australian Maritime Museum
126 Lipson Street, Port Adelaide

 Tickets: http://www.zephyrquartet.com/performances

Australia is very much a nation of 'boat people', past and present. With Arrivals, Zephyr Quartet explores notions of migration to Australia by boat through music, and with it the trials, obstacles, struggles and successes present in our history.

 Featuring a program of Australian works covering a range of historical perspectives, including compositions by Paul Stanhope, Kate Moore, Zephyr Quartet members – Hilary Kleinig, Emily Tulloch & Jason Thomas – as well as a new collaborative work with electronic artist Motez, all expressing the oceanic journey to Australia.

 Arrivals celebrates the incredible courage and great hope that the people who have traveled to our country have shown and also the immense contribution that they have made to our nation.

 Join us for a limited season, advance bookings recommended as there is a strictly limited capacity and our recent performances have sold out!

 This program will be performed at the Western Australian Maritime Museum on November 13 at 6:30pm. See link for details: https://www.facebook.com/events/1809005549311835/
