MJC: The Women’s Festival Sextet feat. Shannon Barnett

Tuesday 18th September 2012
Bennet’s Lane

Since 2000, the MWIJF seeks each year to form a sextet of leading female musicians to perform and promote their own original material. Past members have included Felicity Provan, Monique di Mattina, Anita Hustas, Nadje Noordhuis and Fiona Burnett. With trombonist Shannon Barnett on a visit from study in New York State, the sextet’s core rhythm section members Andrea Keller (piano) Tamara Murphy (bass) and Sonja Horbelt (drums) are again joined by Gian Slater (vocals) and Fran Swinn (guitar). The performance will feature originals compositions by all six members.
