Multi-woodwind instrumentalist/composer Danny Healy is a V.C.A. graduate, with peers such as Luke Howard. He debuted for the MJC in 2001, performing annually, and composing for smaller ensembles, as well as a memorable concert of large scale Third Stream works for an Octet.
Over the past decade or so, he has spent much of this period based overseas in the U.K. and Asia, teaching and performing. Last year he had left Moscow and had just settled in Tbilisi when COVID bought him back to his home base, which has been in Hobart for some years.
Drawing on wide and varied influences the Trio, with Sam Anning (double bass) and Danny Fischer (drums), will be performing mainly originals composed by Healy (clarinet and saxophones).
