About the artists

Connie Lansberg’s unique artistry is found in the freshness and variety of her original works, her natural talent as a storyteller and her ability to hold an audience’s rapt attention. The chemistry she ignites in her band adds another alluring spark to her performances. Connie and her longtime musical collaborators Mark Fitzgibbon (piano), Ben Hanlon (double bass) and Peter Hodges (drums) have honed their collaborative style over four albums and countless performances together. This close connection between the artists makes Connie’s music feel all the more personal and affecting.

About the concert

Themed around secrets, heartache, dreams and the buzz of the unknown, Connie Lansberg’s latest compositions are intimate and uplifting. As is her trademark, these songs are all about the stories they tell and the characters they shed light on. Through Connie’s poignant lyrics and intelligent vocals, she taps into both the rawness of loss and the transformation of new beginnings. Born out of her musical roots in classical church music, country and folk, the music has been brilliantly arranged for jazz quartet by Connie and band member Mark Fitzgibbon. Dotted throughout the show are some of Connie’s favourite jazz standards from the ‘30s and ‘40s – a showcase of her dynamism as a performer.
