Hopetoun Brown and The Genius of Finn Scholes

About this image

Whangarei Fritter Festival

Sorry, this event has been and gone.

Horn-heavy duo and 2017 Taite Prize finalists Hopetoun Brown are joined on stage by arguably the country’s finest trumpet player, Finn Scholes.

Throughout two energetic sets they’ll swap trumpets, saxophones, bass clarinets, tubas, trombones and an assortment of strange keyboard instruments in a programme that moves through blues, soul, funk, jazz, Americana, and stomp.

This fiery trio will play songs from across the Hopetoun Brown cannon, including their brand new long-player Don't Let Them Lock You Up!

“It’s the pervading sense of fun together with a respect for antique jazz, blues, plantation work songs, doo-wop and funk that gives Hopetoun Brown their edge.” - Metro
