PJS Presents: Daisy Fanning and Rubaclava
Wednesday 17 February 7.00pm
Perth Jazz Society presents a Double Bill of original jazz, featuring
stellar local musicians.
Jazz vocalist Daisy Fanning presents original music that brings
together four years of jazz study with her explorations into the
intricacies of Celtic folk music. She is inspired by a diverse range
of artists, from jazz luminaries Blossom Dearie, Ella Fitzgerald and
Gian Slater to folk-jazz artists such as Christine Tobin and Becca
From the folk songs of Ireland and Scotland to American styles like
bebop, blues, and big band swing, she finds the common heart in their
powerful story-telling traditions.
Join her in celebrating the sweet spot where two much loved musical genres meet.
Rubaclava is a Perth-based band with a vision of bringing the infectious
energy of a swingin’ big band to contemporary audiences. Drawing
influences from jazz, blues and second line, Rubaclava will entrance you
with its unique Jungle Jazz, combining a canopy of lush horns, a
deeply-rooted rhythm section and the flair of three distinct vocalists.
