Raylee Bradfield, with Renee Cosio - Sunday 30 August, 6pm

Raylee Bradfield, our very own New Zealand songbird, will be bringing her haunting melodies and poetic lyrics to the drawing room this April. Joined by special guest Renee Cosio, and a few of her talented musical friends, this is an event that will appeal to all ages.

Raylee will share songs from her recent album offering: Where Wildflowers Grow. She will perform alongside her close friend and opening act Renee Cosio. Renee, a fellow vocal teacher and jazz pianist, has been singing with Raylee over the last five years and they share a love for harmonies, friendship and folk music.

"There is a fresh and authentic sound in Bradfield’s debut album, and you can feel the atmosphere of spring in her music" ( review).
