Event details

‘(She possesses a) whimsical tone, like Chet Baker.’ Kate Ceberano

Harriett Allcroft is an Australian vocalist and composer, known for her mesmerising yet light-hearted style. Her virtuosic vocal ability has led to performances at the Melbourne International Jazz Festival, the Melbourne Women’s International Jazz Festival, Wangaratta Jazz Festival and has made her a regular guest at some of Melbourne’s best jazz venues.

This concert of stellar contemporary jazz artists features the effervescent vocalist leading an all-star band. Harriett’s original songs are infused with stirring lyrics and soaring melodies. Performing with trademark playfulness and whimsy, she’ll quickly have you in fits of laughter with her casual offhand remarks, before launching effortlessly into a soul-bearing, poignant ballad.

‘Allcroft … astonishes with soulful intelligence.’ DBArts
