In this video: Horsley & Williams Duo is a driving force in fusing the worlds of electro-acoustic music and the refined counterpoint of the 18th century within contemporary Australia. This program is a celebration of new Australian song with specials guests; vocalist and songwriter Lucy Wise and composer and electric bass-player Claire Cross. It showcases a diverse approach to Australian song and storytelling with both guests having backgrounds in classical, jazz, pop, folk and traditional music. New music for voice, ukulele, guitar, uilleann pipes, banjo, recorders and electric bass will be created especially for this performance, including arrangements of Lucy’s songs and new instrumental works, forming a remarkable collaboration of leading alternative artists.
