Rapt in Woy Woy
Four person band Rapt will perform at the Troubadour Central Coast folk club meeting at the Woy Woy CWA Hall on Saturday, June 25.
"The four band members met at festivals as members of the Urban eXcentrics and Mothers of Intention," according to publicity officer Ms Willy Timmerman.
Rapt have since played together at a number of venues including the National Folk Festival in Canberra, and at folk festivals in the Illawarra and at St Albans.
"Rapt combine the many musical loves of the band members," said Ms Timmerman.
"Classically trained but with a jazz-improv bent, Paul Laszlo plays double bass and banjo and has a rich baritone voice.
"Equally at home playing with the Melbourne or Willoughby Symphony Orchestra's, Paul's virtuosic playing adds great depth to Rapt," said Ms Timmerman.
"Multi-talented songstress, Ann Palumbo on acoustic and classical guitar, mandolin and double bass is a jazz chanteuse with a penchant for tango but has roots in folk music as well as the improvised independent music scene.
"Award-winning songwriter Rosie McDonald, who plays acoustic guitar, bouzouki, percussion, has a strong rhythmic drive with her instruments and a rich alto voice.
"Tony Pyrzakowski is the fiery fiddler, tapping into his Central European roots to play Gypsy jazz as fluidly as he plays Irish tunes and stunning improvisation," she said.
