NEWS: Line-Up for Pizza Express Steinway 2-Piano Festival Announced (March 13-19)

Mike Westbrook

The artists for this year’s Pizza Express Steinway Festival have been announced. 

– The legends are in on Wednesday (Mike Westbrook – above) and Saturday/ Sunday (Bob Dorough). 

– The duo of Nikki Yeoh and Zoe Rahman is a very appealing prospect. 

– There is a Latin night on Friday with Alex Wilson and London-Cuban sensation Eliane Correa. 

– Ian Shaw and Liane Carroll on Tuesday is described in the club’s blurb as “not for the faint-hearted” (what can they mean?) . 

– Monday’s pairing is the regular duo of Stephanie Trick (thank you Wikipedia), ” born 1987 in St. Louis, Missouri and an American stride, ragtime and jazz pianist.” and Paolo Alderighi, born in Milan in 1980 and together they sound and look like THIS. 

– For those of us with short attention spans, the communicative sparks will be flying in both the Aspland / Horler and the Leak/Neame duos on Saturday lunchtime.
