The Event

Kathleen Tagg & Andre Petersen in Johannesburg!
Kathleen Tagg & Andre Petersen perform together in Johannesburg for the first time on June 7th, 2017. They will play music from their acclaimed album "Where Worlds Collide" (Ossia Records, 2016), which will be released on Table Pounding Records in the USA in September 2017. This tour also celebrates the launch of the digital version of the album, with downloads available. This tour is presented with the kind assistance of the Concerts SA Mobility Fund and SAMRO.

The Kathleen Tagg /Andre Petersen Piano Duo brings together two of South Africa’s most celebrated pianists, one eclectic classical and one jazz artist, in a unique collaboration. These concerts are Kathleen's only South Africa shows in 2017 and will celebrate the upcoming USA release of Where Worlds Collide on Table Pounding Records in the USA, plus a 2-week tour of the USA by Andre and Kathy in September and October.

About the artists: 
Kathleen’s fifteen years spent living and performing in New York City involved in the contemporary music scene have inspired her to think of the piano in a totally different way, using the inside of the piano to create a unique sound world and creating music and shows that cross boundaries and genres effortlessly. A 2014 SAMA-nominee for best classical/instrumental album, she has performed on four continents with some of the world’s leading musicians, including Grammy-nominated duo partner David Krakauer. Venues include many appearances at Lincoln Center and Carnegie Hall, where she gave her acclaimed solo debut. Her recorded work can be heard on NAXOS, Universal, Gallo Africa and Table Pounding Records labels. 

Andre’s years working with the finest South African and international jazz musicians are combined with his experience on the European and international jazz scene. In addition to performing with his own groups and iconic South African musicians such as Winston Mankunku, Feya Faku, Robbie Jansen and many others, being based in Belgium for a few years, Andre has also worked with a musically diverse group of artists such as Grammy award winning World music group Zap Mama, Jazz musicians Reggie Washington (Roy Hargrove/Branford Marsalis), Dre Pallemaerts (Joe Lovano/Toots Thielemans), Stefon Harris (Wynton Marsalis, Kenny Barron) and many others.
