Hetty Kate in Concert with the Ipswich City Big Band

Presented by Ipswich Civic Centre

 

Popular Australian jazz vocalist Hetty Kate is often lauded for her ‘natural musicality’, unadorned vocal style, pure tone and impeccable timing, making her one of the most sought-after jazz artists by audiences and musicians alike, including James Morrison.

Gracing stages from New Zealand to New York, Hetty has fast made her mark on both the Australian and international jazz scenes, described as “the real deal” and “one of the world’s leading swing vocalists” (Will Friedwald, author and jazz critic, 2017).

Hetty divides her time between Paris and Melbourne, performing regularly at Australia’s premier jazz festivals and clubs, as well as major venues such as Melbourne Recital Centre and the Sydney Opera House.

Born in Britain and raised in Melbourne, Hetty has a classic, clear sound reminiscent of the vocalists from the 1940s and 50s, and is often compared to a young Peggy Lee or Doris Day. Known for her pure tone, diction, faultless rhythm and swing, as well an effortless ease on stage, Hetty has become one of the busiest jazz vocalists in Australia. Whilst leading three diverse ensembles of her own, she is a frequent guest with big bands and combos locally and internationally.

 

The Ipswich City Big Band is a community based jazz big band that regularly performs in Ipswich and Brisbane, and touring regional Queensland. The band performs a range of traditional and modern big band music in various styles including swing, Latin, pop and funk.

Don’t miss this exclusive, Ipswich only concert, featuring Hetty Kate and the Ipswich City Big Band!

JAZZ SINGER HETTY KATE REMINDS ME OF A GOOD CHAMPAGNE: SIMULTANEOUSLY EFFERVESCENT AND RESTRAINED… NATURAL ELEGANCE, A PRETTY VOICE DEVOID OF ANY HARSHNESS, EXCELLENT DICTATION… AND A BREEZY RHYTHMIC SENSE IN HER PHRASING (John Shand, Sydney Morning Herald)
