With Lachlan James Mitchell
Piano fiend and enigmatic genius singer-songwriter Hue Blanes is bringing his second solo album ‘Holiday’ to Rosny Barn. Featuring Hue’s virtuoso singing and piano, the album is a very human story of loneliness, despair and the difficult search for meaning among the everyday tedium of being human, told in Hue’s trademark wry and moving style. Think Phillip Glass meets Jeff Buckley meets David Foster Wallace. Voted PBS Young Elder of Jazz 2017 and 2017 Green Room multiple nominee, Hue combines jazz, classical, art song and pop in this rare and musically sophisticated work, ahead of its time yet deceptively simple. This intimate performance will be one of a very limited number of shows to launch this new work. Hue will be joined by Lachlan James Mitchell on electric guitar for a reimagining of this new work.
