A tough job but someone has to do it. Vocalists Trudy Kerr and Ingrid James are currently performing songs from their CD Reunion (Jazzizit) in Noosa, on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast (above). It’s whaere they have connections….Ingrid James lives in Queensland, and adoptive Londoner Trudy Kerr originally hails from there.
They will be bringing some of that Australian sunshine, and also the experience of having gigged the material extensively in Australia, to a lot of places where a little sunshine goes a long way. Here’s the list, (central London dates in bold.)
