Adventures in Pianoland
Known as Australia’s Queen of Boogie Piano, Jan Preston has a reputation as an astonishing piano player with a rich resonant voice who is a magnetic live performer. In this brand new work Preston spin yarns from dives in Soho to the concert halls of Europe, to stealing a piano in broad daylight from a bar in downtown Wellington, New Zealand’s capital and comes clean on her longstanding and sometimes bumpy road to piano stardom.
From Chopsticks to Chopin to Winnie Atwell expect virtuosic playing as Jan candidly she spills the beans on her extraordinary experiences as a longstanding performing musician whilst sharing insights, at turns whimsical and shrewd, into our music and culture of the last fifty years.
