“Keyna Wilkins is a restless artist. An adventurous soloist, equally brilliant as a pianist and flutist” – Australian Jazz

8pm: Keyna Wilkins

Keyna is a leading musician-composer who performs her own unique compositions, improvisations, and interpretations often with loop pedal and projections. She was one of three finalists in the Australian Art Music Awards 2021 and 2018. For this show, she will be joined by improvising drummer Shane Carpini.

Stylistically broad, her performances explore the concept of Ad Libitum, stream-of-consciousness improvisations alongside her composed pieces, often using a loop pedal and visual projections. She performs pieces from her 9 albums. Her concerts will take you on a journey of impressionistic dream-like sequences alongside landscape depictions, existential philosophical quests alongside whimsical gestures. She has performed her solo show around Australia including Phoenix Central Park, MONA, Sydney Women’s International Jazz Festival, Melbourne Digital Concert Hall, Australian Flute Festival, and many others.

9.30pm: The Emerald Ruby

The Emerald Ruby weaves a delicate musical tapestry from an on-stage forest of flutes and ukuleles. Voice like a siren, intricate melodies sprout from her classical training, gently manicured by her love of Folk music and Jazz.

A rich musical history accompanies The Emerald Ruby through every performance. Her first musical home was the Orchestra, where Shostakovich and Stravinsky informed her understanding of structure and texture. In her teens, she fell for the alt-metal band System of Down, which combined with her study at the University of Newcastle, saw her make the transition from pure classical musician to a multi-genre powerhouse.

She has toured and recorded extensively with The Button collective and experimental folk/jazz band Vanishing Shapes. She regularly performs with jazz-rock band Othrship, and Psyc rock band Lachlan X Morris.
