Joanna Wallfisch | The Great Song Cycle – Hobart

Concert or Performance

3 Nov 2019

Don’t miss Joanna on her totally unique, multi-faceted project – a 2000 mile, zero-emissions, solo-female concert tour that takes in the breathtaking landscape and communities of Australia by bicycle.
Described by Downbeat Magazine as “an exquisite singer-songwriter”, Joanna’s music conveys a beauty that speaks to straight to the human condition. Her songs reveal truths about love, loss, adventure, home and hope. World Music Report described it as “quintessential heart-music by a vocalist who seems to have connected with the deepest recesses of her being emerging into brightness again with songs of haunting beauty.”
Joanna is a master in the art of live vocal looping and plays baritone ukulele, piano, flute, Indian shruti box, kalimba and melodica. She effortlessly imbues her songs with nuances of jazz, classical, art-song, and folk, carrying her “clear-eyed poetry” (Boston Globe) and “striking vocals” (Hothouse). Her songwriting extends beyond just lyrics and melody – Joanna also arranges for ensembles including string quartets, winds, a cappella voices and more.
Joanna’s career has taken her around the globe, and she has appeared and collaborated with the likes of Dan Tepfer, Wynton Marsalis, Kenny Werner, Sam Newsome, Lee Konitz, to name a few.
