Location: The Rhythm Cafe | Category: Book launch
The Rhythm Cafe is famous for bringing world-class talent to Foster, and this gig continues the trend.
Jan Preston – a well known ABC and Radio New Zealand performer – can best be described as Australia’s queen of boogie woogie piano, playing in the style of Winifred Atwell. For those of us who saw her last time she was in Foster, she’s a sensation. Her brilliance as a boogie, honky tonk and ragtime piano player s matched by her fabulously rich voice and effervescent stage presence.
Her best known film composition, in which she also performed, is the theme for the ABC TV series Australian Story, which is heard nationally each week.
