AJ Leonard & Jenny Rowlands
Multi instrumentalist, arranger and recording artist A.J. Leonard is one of Australia's pioneer ukulele players. Feted and respected in Hawaii, the spiritual home of the instrument, he is highly regarded to be among the best in the world. After attending the VCA Jenny Rowlands continued her study of the cello overseas and has performed professionally throughout the classical scene in Australia. This classical background combined with influences from jazz and pop produce a combination of sweet melody and great groove. Her cello made by Australian luthier Warren Nolan-Fordham is the only cello in the world made with Huon pine.The duo is a result of an appreciation for classical and film music. They have performed and conducted workshops at major festivals and ukulele retreats across Australia and the USA. Together they are a true melding of musical minds, known on the world circuit for their unique ukulele/cello interplay and finely crafted arrangements.
The Fringe ukes are a community music group from Titirangi, West Auckland. They have been in operation for two years and have performed at local events and twice at the Titirangi Festival of Music
They are led by David Parker,(‘Fingers’ in the Nukes).
The emphasis is on great songs and having fun playing in a group. However expect some surprises with interesting song choice, stimulating arrangements and some of David’s great original tunes thrown in for good measure.
The venue is the gorgeous Outram Hall in Murray's bay
on the north shore.
a glass of wine or Juice will be included
