Extraordinary concert pianist, Simon Tedeschi, is one of Australia’s best-loved classical musicians, performing everything from Mozart and Chopin to Debussy and Prokofiev for orchestras, festivals, and venues around the world, from Sydney Opera House to Carnegie Hall via Abu Dhabi and Shanghai.  With a long-harboured love of jazz, and three celebrated albums of Gershwin’s music to his name, Tedeschi teams up with jazz vocalist and violinist, George Washingmachine, for something a little different, Gershwin favourites and classic jazz standards by Cole Porter, Oscar Peterson, Fats Waller and more.

George has played major festivals around Australia as well as jazz festivals in France, Switzerland and the UK.  He toured his group Feel the Manouche to Havana International Jazz Festival, and the Singapore Jazz Festival, then toured across the USA from New Orleans to New York and Seattle.
