Ruth Rodgers-Wright with the Mark Fitzgibbon Trio @ Classic Southside

Venue: Classic Southside - upstairs at Classic Cinemas, 9 Gordon Street, Elsternwick, 3185.

Ruth Rogers-Wright performs the great songs of Dr Nina Simone and Billie Holiday in a concert including original music and poetry evoking the sprit of these acclaimed artists.

Ruth's smouldering vocals invoke the music of Nina Simone with soul when she sings her unforgettable songs and is accompanied by a stellar jazz trio featuring the great jazz pianist Mark Fitzgibbon , rising star Robbie Finch on bass and the brilliant drumming of Sam Bates.

Her likeness to jazz’s beloved vocal artists moved the critics to acclaim her talent at recent performances at the Edinburgh and Adelaide festivals and sold out performances at the Paris Cat.
