JEFF PETERSON & SIMON POWISThursday 20 AprilDoors 6.00 / Concert 7.00pm
Hawaii meets Australia in this all-star line up featuring Grammy nominated Jeff Peterson (Hawaii) and nationally acclaimed classical guitarist Simon Powis (Australia). The duo will fuse together their unique sounds and skills to create a special night of Hawaiian, classical and Jazz flavours that will showcase their respective world class artistry. Also featuring on the night will be singer Evita Arce (NY) joining the duo on vocals for a couple of numbers.
Recognized as one of Hawaii’s most versatile musicians, Jeff Peterson is at the heart of the Hawaiian music scene today. His passion for the guitar has allowed him to shine as a solo artist and has given him the opportunity to collaborate with a wide variety of artists from Hawaii, across the US, and abroad. With his Grammy nominated album, his focus on Slack Key guitar, classical, and jazz music has allowed him to develop a unique and transcendent voice on the guitar while being deeply rooted in the traditions of his Hawaiian heritage.
Simon Powis as a talented soloist, chamber musician and innovator. Growing up in Sydney, Australia, Powis began his studies at the age of five on the cornet. Since picking up the guitar at age eleven, Simon’s enduring obsession would result in performances throughout Europe, Australia and the Americas.
