“Swing Driven Thing”

‘Electrifying’– ‘extraordinarily animated’–‘featuring rare and natural charisma’...

These are words used to describe Fiona Pears, the highly talented violinist and composer from Christchurch.

Together with her talented band, featuring Ian Tilley on piano, Pete Fleming on double bass and Mike Ferrar on guitar, Fiona will perform music from her own exciting compositions as well as some well known favorites. Expect a fiery melting pot of flavours!

New Zealand born and now based in Christchurch after spending the last 10 years performing internationally, Fiona’s personal highlights include appearing at Ronnie Scott’s world famous jazz club in London and performing her own compositions and arrangements with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic.

Fiona has released six CDs and two DVDs to date. Her latest CD Swing Driven Thing was released in 2014 and is a mixture of her own compositions alongside passionate gypsy jazz.
