Nat Bartsch's Lullaby Tour

Melbourne Recital Centre, 31 Sturt Street, Southbank

Nat Bartsch’s delicate works are often reached for when listeners need a moment of peace and calm. ARIA-nominated album Forever More sees Nat re-interpret her lullabies for jazz ensemble, presenting a new way to enjoy her contemplative music in concert. In a jazz setting, Nat and her band have the space to improvise on her original creations, building and shaping their meanings in real-time. This creates an even more thoughtful and reflective listening experience. Julien Wilson (tenor saxophone/sound effects) and Mary Doumany (harp) join Nat and her quartet for this evocative performance.
