Jonathan Fisher (Piano), Samuel Jackson (Baritone), Hayley Swanton (Soprano)

Music by Samuel Barber, Florence Price, and Leonard Bernstein and classic broadway hits from Guys and Dolls, Annie Get Your Gun, and West Side Story

This year, &Piano is extremely fortunate to welcome one of the finest collaborative pianists in the North – Jonathan Fisher – who is joined by Soprano Hayley Swanton and Baritone Sam Jackson to take you on an enthralling and entertaining journey through America’s most compelling musical landscapes.

Jonathan, Hayley and Sam will take you on a musical trip documenting the sound of America – from the forging of its young, industrial, modern, super-power identity, it’s struggle with slavery and civil rights, to the influence that spirituals, blues, ragtime and jazz had on some of it’s most popular music. From a warm summer’s evening in Knoxville, Tennessee to Broadway’s most iconic sights and sounds, you’ll experience music that summarises the highs and lows of the American Dream – from profound and reflective, to catchy, witty and down-right fun!
