A Night of Jazz with Harry James Angus
A NIGHT OF JAZZ with HARRY JAMES ANGUS
Presented in partnership with the University of Adelaide.
Join Harry James Angus and the top graduating jazz musicians from the Elder Conservatorium of Music for a night of unforgettable performances.
Harry James Angus, the firebrand trumpet-playing vocalist from The Cat Empire, is known both for his thrilling live performances and for his constant musical re-invention.
His work takes the raw intensity, chaos and exploratory power that has helped make The Cat Empire such an incandescent live experience, but redirects it towards a darker, more weirdly beautiful universe. A universe inspired by artists like Nina Simone, Van Morrison, Antony and The Johnsons and John Coltrane.
Be entranced by Harry’s smooth, smoky vocals and delighted by his enigmatic presence and unique way with words, as he weaves stories little and large for his audience.
Do not miss this very special evening at the Elder Hall.
This event includes the presentation of the 2021 Helpmann Academy Jazz Awards.
