Sunday, November 19th, 2017New Projects...
Hi everyone! :-) I've been a bit quite on this site, but I'm back and VeRy excited to share with you some new projects I'm doing!!!
The first is the trio THREE SHADES BLUE, which features Dave McGuire on acoustic guitar and Joel Gregory on double bass. We three were a band 15years ago but then our lives took us to different cities, but now we are back and it sounds better than ever! :-) It's old school blues and original folk tunes and it's fun fun fun!
Also, I'm doing a new duo project with the incredible bassist SAM ANNING! This is a bit special too, as we both contribute to the writing and perform our songs and some jazz standards, plus there may be some violin-ing happening (finally!) from me, after not performing that instrument in public in a loooong time! .....STAY TUNED!!! hoorays for music!!

Hi lovely people who may be reading this, or hello out there into pysber-space..
I thought I'd update things here a little, and say that I am now based in Brisbane, QLD, Australia. And i'm very lucky to be doing some teaching at the Conservatorium of Music there. I am still travelling about to do gigs, and of course enjoying my bestest gig EVA, being a mum.
There are a few jazz festivals in OZ i'm still to perform at this year, and also, I will be recording with my band - the wonderful Tim Firth (drums), Greg Coffin (pno), Carl Morgan (guitar) and Brett Hirst (d.bass)...so much good stuff coming up!
thank you for stopping by and blessings to you all XO kristin :-)
