Emilie Conway Quartet | You Must Believe In Spring
Crescent Arts Centre, Belfast • Friday 03 February ’17
Join dazzling Dublin born jazz singer Emilie Conway and her musicians as they make a welcome return to the Crescent Arts Centre for an evening of enchanting music. Songs from the Great American Songbook, South America, Joni Mitchell, and the quartet’s original compositions to celebrate Spring!
Since the release of debut album The Secret of a Rose in 2012, Emilie’s career has blossomed with exciting invitations and opportunities, collaborating and performing in Europe, Northern Ireland, America and the Caribbean. She received an Arts Council Award to explore and present the music of lesser-known composer Alec Wilder together with pianist and musical director, Johnny Taylor. This subsequently became the material for her second album Dear World; Emilie Conway Sings Alec Wilder, released last year.
Emilie will be supported by Johnny Taylor (piano), Damian Evans (double bass) and Dominic Mullan (drums). Her musicians are recognised as among Ireland’s leading jazz musicians, sought after north and south.
