REBECCA BARNARD: FRIDAY 24 JUNE

Rebecca Barnard’s musical heritage spans generations, and she is continuing the tradition.

In the 1920s her grandparents, Jim and Kath Barnard, ran The Kath Barnard Jazz Band. In the 1940s, their son Len (Rebecca’s father) joined the band at the age of 12. And in 1952 The Len Barnard Jazz Band recorded Australia’s first microgroove LP record.

With that heritage it’s no surprise that Rebecca started singing with her father’s band when she was just 13. She had grown up listening to Billie Holiday and Louis Armstrong.

At the age of 14 she heard Joni Mitchell and Bob Dylan and was hooked, and the cross pollination of music styles is still evident in her music.

Rebecca founded the band Rebecca’s Empire, and has sung with artists including Stephen Cummings, Paul Kelly, Tim Rogers, Renee Geyer, Deborah Conway and You Am I.

Rebecca will perform at the library on Friday 24th June from 6pm.
