Two musical giants, Neil and Tim Finn changed the course of music history with their songwriting and performing over the last 3 decades. This awe inspiring legacy of music is celebrated by ‘FinnLand’, a collection of hit songs by the brothers performed by two of the countries finest performers. Emma Pask and Darren percival.
From the creator and director of the project, Gerard Masters.
“To my ears, good jazz music has always been about drawing an audience in, making them feel great about life, and then taking them places that they may not have ventured before. I feel that FinnLand is a group that does just that, drawing on the huge chapter of the great Australasian songbook penned by Neil and Tim Finn, and using these timeless songs as launch pads for musical journeys. My FinnLand cohorts have all grown up with Finn music as part of their childhood soundtracks, and use their extensive experience to get right inside the songs, and build fresh interpretations. Paying tribute to the composers , whilst putting their own brush strokes to the sonic canvas.”
