Taittinger Winter Jazz with Kevin Clark and Fran Barton August 2013
Bay of Many Coves and Taittinger Champagne proudly present a Luxury Jazz Weekend with a return performance by Fran Barton and Kevin Clark
Fran and Kevin, with bass player Rowan Clark, were the first artists to appear at our Taittinger Luxury Jazz Weekend events. Since then they have sold out at every performance.
Guaranteed to get you quickly in the mood as they take an entertaining and sometimes surprising trip through a repertoire of modern and traditional jazz, from ragtime to New Orleans, from swing to bop, and beyond. Fran, Kevin and Rowan will entertain you throughout the weekend.
Of special interest will be the trio’s Friday night dinner performance celebrating the music of Peggy Lee. Then on Saturday, an often humorous but enlightening introduction to the history of jazz from Kevin, who in addition to his stellar career as a performer and composer, is also a lecturer at the NZ School of Music.
Wine enthusiasts will be well catered for at our special Champagne Master Class on Saturday afternoon. A representative from the House of Taittinger will compare various Taittinger styles including vintage, brut and rose, as well as samples from different champagne houses. Find out how and why they can be so different.
Your weekend will be capped off with a sumptuous degustation dinner prepared by Executive Chef, Hannes Barieter complete with wine matches. And, of course, you’ll feel right at home in the stunning natural surroundings of one of the most beautiful and relaxing destinations in New Zealand.
