Kacey Patrick & Andrew Veivers with special guest Louise King

An extraordinary night of music, traversing genres and soundscapes and delving into all the musical nuances possible from master musicians. Kacey Patrick (voice), Andrew Veivers (Spanish guitar) and Lousie King (cello) are some of the finest exponents of their craft in the country. This will be a very special concert, especially curated to accompany SWELL Smalls. Immerse yourself in sculpture, art, music & community.

Vocalist Kacey Patrick and guitarist Andrew Veivers combine to present an enigmatic program of jazz, folk and world music. Best known for her work with duo stringmansassy, Kacey’s three-octave vocal range is a rare instrument combining sublime vocal intuition and beauty, with instinctive risk taking and vocal soundscapes. One of Australia’s finest Spanish Guitarists, Andrew Veivers draws on a wide range of musical influences to evoke the sensual and mesmerising sounds of the Spanish guitar in all of its guises.

One of the most suprising and extraordinary cellists you will ever here, Louise King is simply breathtaking.
