Luca Ferrini and Joze Kotar10 March, Moonah Arts Centre 7.30pm
Clarinetist Jože Kotar and pianist Luca Ferrini have been playing together for more than ten years. Their repertoire ranges from the Classical period to the contemporaries but they prefer to perform modern and contemporary music, written in "traditional" style, jazz and live electronics. In duo as well in other chamber ensembles, mainly Slovenian (MD7 contemporary Music Ensemble, KOS DSS – Soloists Chamber Orchestra of the Slovenian Society of Composers, Neofonia Ensemble, and others) they premiered more than hundred new works. In their concerts they always try to mix different genres and, when possible, to propose new works. During all these years a number of composers has already written for them, other have accepted their proposal to write new pieces. In this way, for the next seasons they are going to prepare a programme entitled "Music from the Islands", dedicated to music for clarinet and piano written by composers who live, work or come from different islands around the world. For the occasion, among the other pieces they are going to premiere new works, written by Tasmanian composers. The programme is quite various and suitable for every kind of audience.
Two highly respected singers and musicians, Ken Nicol and Fiona Ross, are combining their talents for a concert tour which should delight anyone with an interest in great music and great songs. This unique double header event - with Ken Nicol performing his own set as well as joining Fiona Ross on her traditional songs - is one which shouldn’t be missed.www.kennicol.comwww.fionaross.com.au

National Folk Festival Regional OutreachBack to the 1780's! If it sounded good back then, why not today?
Almost 300 years ago, some musicians from around Antwerp, Brussels, Gent and Leuven decided to write down their favourite music. As time passed, however, the paper turned yellow, the ink began to fade, and the music itself was left to gather dust along with the faded manuscripts …
That is, until now! With their finely textured arrangements WÖR injects new energy into 18th-century tunes from the Flanders region of Belgium. Their music shines an inventive spotlight, with a modern twist, on tunes from these manuscripts.
