Quirky, catchy, cool jazz storyteller to perform


thumbnail Linn Lorkin-526Country Homestead at Black Sheep Farm, Waipu Cove, is delighted to announce their next House Concert.

Linn Lorkin, the ‘Hey, Piano Bar Lady’ reveals the passion of a woman exploring and living her dream. A self-devised cabaret-style jazz musical with lots of original songs and numerous references to Broadway hits, this show is an absolute delight, easy on the ear, uplifting and pleasing to the heart.

This phenomenally talented musician and vocalist has performed all over the world. She was featured with her own trio at the famed Ronnie Scott's jazz club in London and regularly tours in Europe and Australia as the lead singer in The Jews Brothers Band and French Toast.

Linn sings and talks us through an earlier period of her life: from Tokoroa, through Copenhagen and Italy and to her rise as a leading piano bar player in New York in the late 70s to the mid 80s. Follow her down the streets of New York as she takes the city's night-spots by storm. From rusty SoHo to ritzy Park Avenue she delivers her heady adventures in the Big Apple told in stand-up style and laced with quirky, catchy, cool songs, delivered from a piano stool.

Linn will be joined by Aaron Coddel on double bass.

Her theatre credits include several years of experimental theatre and more recently, the performance of shows about different slices of her life, musical autobiographies. She sings in several languages and has recorded a number of albums for her own label, Rouge Records.

Says The NZ Listener: “… she writes cool, elegant songs with brilliantly tangled rhymes and dizzying musical twists... Lorkin is a national treasure.”

This promises to be a unique opportunity to experience a highly entertaining musical theatre in an intimate location you won’t want to miss.
