Hopetoun Brown & the Genius of Finn Scholes

10 May

General Admission | Adult: $25.00 | Senior: $20.00 | Student: $20.00 (+service fees) / 7.30pm

Taite Prize finalists Hopetoun Brown enlist the country’s finest trumpet player Finn Scholes for a unique journey through rhythm and blues.

These three multi-instrumentalists travel with a boot-load of exotic instruments. Bass clarinets, tubas and trombones are swapped for trumpets, saxophones and an assortment of strange keyboard instruments throughout the two stomp-heavy sets. Lead singer Tim Stewart’s large boots will rattle floors throughout the nation as the band work through their repertoire spanning blues, soul, funk, jazz, Americana and stomp.

The set-list will be peppered with tunes from Hopetoun Brown’s latest album Look So Good which features guests turns from Tami Neilson, Marlon Williams and their touring buddy Finn Scholes. If you’re looking for a jazz journey that starts in New Orleans and ends at your back door this could be your night.

“It’s the pervading sense of fun together with a respect for antique jazz, blues, plantation work songs, doo-wop and funk that gives Hopetoun Brown their edge” Metro Magazine
