Australias recorder virtuoso Genevieve Lacey is very excited about playing at The Bangalow Music Festival, which reaches a high note from August 18-20. Genevieve was one of the stars of the very first festival and makes a welcome return to help celebrate its fifth birthday.
There is something special about a festival in a small regional place performers and listeners come specifically to engage with the music and festival community, Lacey said. So the whole experience is warm and intensely musical.
For her 2006 festival appearance Genevieve is introducing the audience to two of her long time collaborators and friends Danny Yeadon (cello, viola da gamba) and Neal Peres da Costa (harpsichord, piano).
