Pair jazz up waterfront
Kapiti alto saxophonist Felicity Fox and flautist Michelle Scullion are teaming up to take on Jazz at the Waterfront on Wednesday.
Scullion has performed around Wellington for many years with her jazz quartet MSQ, and performs regularly with the May Holidays, of which Fox is a member.
She will sing, play the flute and percussion while Fox plays keyboard and alto saxophone.
They will be joined by Kapiti pianist Gilbert Haisman and Rob Matthews on mandolin and strings.
Scullion said the concert would include classical and contemporary jazz items, and "some traditional folk songs that we're beefing up a bit".
"Rob's got a collection of various interesting ethnic guitars and [I'll] bring out the chinese bamboo flute, it's beautiful," she said.
Fox said the pair had "quite a few things up our sleeve".
Having been busy with family and performing with the May Holidays in 2012, this year she plans to launch her first solo album in time for her 50th birthday in July.
"This is my year to really amp things up musically [so] fingers crossed that all goes well."
Fox said she was looking forward to the concert with Scullion, as sharing "decades of music between us, this will be a lot of fun", she said.
Wednesday, 7pm, The Waterfront, Raumati.
