Emlyn & Jodie O’Regan with Matthew Lykos and Amber Evans
Concert: Emlyn and Jodie O’Regan have come back from two years in Nashville Tennessee with stories to share. On their adventures they played renaissance music with a lutinist, wrote for and sang in a southern church choir, jammed in a room filled with mountain dulcimer players and sang old style harmonies in an accapella quartet. Now they’re home, they’d love to share some of the music they found and made on their travels in Music City. Emlyn and Jodie are thrilled to be joined by singers Matthew Lykos and (as long as she can get here from Qld) Amber Evans to present the quartet pieces.
Emlyn and Jodie O’Regan have arranged and performed a range of acappella roots and celtic folk songs at festivals and workshops around Australia. They both have a background in choral and classical music and are often sought after to run festival choirs and singing sessions.
An alumnus of The Elder Conservatorium of Music, multi award winning Matthew Lykos combines his formal training with the life-embracing experience of his lifelong participation in the folk music community to weave performances of great richness and extraordinary beauty and energy.
Amber Evans is a vocalist, composer and conductor based in New York and Brisbane. Amber has premiered over thirty new vocal works and became well-versed in modern contemporary classic works of the last few decades. She has a Masters in vocal performance from the Manhattan School of Music and a choral conducting degree at University of Cambridge.
