Nat will be joined for this concert by her regular bassist Tom Lee and Sydney drummer Evan Mannell. The concert will be at Foundry616 (616-620 Harris St, Ultimo) on Wednesday 13th November at 8.30pm. Ticket prices are $25/$15.
This concert will celebrate the release of Nat Bartsch Trio’s new album, To Sail, To Sing, which has received both critical and popular acclaim. The album is an independent release partially funded through a successful crowdfunding campaign.
Nat’s trio launched the album in Melbourne in April (with drummer Daniel Farrugia) and successfully toured to Japan to promote the release with support from Arts Victoria.
Nat Bartsch Trio has garnered much attention for creating reflective, beautiful contemporary music. Influenced by indie rock, minimalism and European jazz, their music has been embraced by music lovers of many genres. The trio was formed in 2006 during studies at the VCA. They have released three CDs and toured to Japan and Europe (most notably, supporting Abdullah Ibrahim’s Ekaya). Nat was the recipient of the 2010 Melbourne Prize for Music Development Award.
