Hi all, I thought I’d let you know about some exciting shows that are coming up in March 2020….A perfect Christmas gift!
I’m thrilled to be performing some of the Gypsy jazz repertoire with the amazing guitarist Connor Hartley-Hall. We have been practising hard so I figure it would be nice to hit the road and do some fun shows.
Violinist Fiona Pears and guitarist Connor Hartley-Hall share a love of Gypsy jazz. This music was originally made famous by legendary guitarist Django Reinhardt and French virtuoso violinist Stéphane Grappelli, when they formed the ‘Quintette du Hot Club de France’ back in the 1930s.
The music Fiona and Connor will be performing will be a mix of fiery Gypsy jazz, heartwarming ballads and some well known classics such as ‘ Czardas’ and ‘Sabre Dance’.
These shows will be exciting and dynamic; a musical experience not to be missed.
Tickets are $25 and available from Eventfinda (0800 289 849).
Fiona and full band will also be playing a concert at Lyttelton Arts Factory on March 1st. Tickets will be on sale soon, please check back for more information….
