Oh we had such a great time at the Magnetic Island Jazz Festival… it was my first jazz festival and so much to experience. Meeting and hanging out with other musicians, including veterans such as John Hoffman and Craig Scott, not to mention the incredible Di Bird was amazing, and getting to talk with them was just fantastic!
I was proud to be one of Ingrid James emerging “New Generation” performers, with Jesse and Merinda.
We three performed our sets on Saturday night, and then some more on Sunday afternoon with the Hawkins Ball Trio supporting us. We all learned a lot, and enjoyed a debrief with Ingrid after each set – more learning. And all of it so very helpful.
