Small is good
Duos and trios are often the most potent of musical combinations. They allow an intimacy with the audience and a communication between the musicians that bigger combinations can sometimes lack.
As musicians we often work in the smaller formats of duos and trios for a variety of gigs, said guitar man Jim Kelly. Rarely do we present these at the Rous but this is all going to change.
Jim Kellys Duos, Trios and Slightly Larger Stuff will showcase the talents of Jim on guitars and mandocello, singer Natalie Gay (what a voice she has!), John Hoffman on trumpet, guitarist Matt Smith, David Ades on saxophone and world minstrels The Hottentots (Carl and Parissa).
See how many combinations can be formed from this talented lot and then see them all come together for a grand finale at the Jazz N Blues night at the Rous Hotel in Lismore next Tuesday, April 1l, from 8.30pm. Entry is $7/5.
