In this incredible performance of '88 Pianos I Have Known', pianist prodigy Jan Preston shares with us her enthusiasm for pianos.
Projected visual arts combine with unforgettable biographical stories, original songs and piano music, which will move you from tears to laughter. Underpinned by Jan's thriving virtuosity (together with her trio) audiences will be tapping and clapping, and will leave with an unforgettable mental association and never see the instrument the same again.
Jan Preston is widely recognised as Australia's Queen of boogie piano. She is a magnetic live performer and astonishing piano player with a rich resonant voice. Her original songs, compositions and mastery of boogie-woogie captivate audiences at festivals and in concerts around the world.
Winner of five music awards, Jan writes music for film and TV such as her sister Gaylene's film 'My Year with Helen'. From her background in classical music, Jan has inspired audiences by pioneering her own sound, not only through her piano playing but also her singing and songwriting, which now sees her shine as a truly Antipodean original.
