Young@HEART – Michelle Spriggs & David Rastrick
Michelle Spriggs & David Rastrick is a duo that have performed together in numerous outfits over the past 13 years, now coming to jazz it up at Margaret River HEART.
Their highlights include opening for Boz Skaggs + Michael McDonald, Diana Krall and Carol King with David’s band ‘Jazztrix’ at Leeuwin Estate.
Michelle hails from NZ, David from Denmark. Both are qualified, Jazz trained musicians with a joint love of Swing, Bossa Nova, Soul and Pop. They will intertwine these genres with a mix of covers and original material on guitar, keyboard, trumpet and double bass.
The Young@HEART music program is held at Margaret River HEART every Monday morning from 10am to 11am. The program does not run on public holidays or when there is another major event in the foyer.
The initiative was developed to safely encourage participation in the arts among older residents (over 60s) during the initial stages of the COVID-19 pandemic. Due to high interest, the free performances have since been opened to people of all ages. Nonetheless, the senior demographic still makes up the majority of the audience.
Young@Heart is broadcast live on Radio Margaret River.
This is a free event.
