Edwina Thorne Ensemble

A trumpeting master class is in store when trumpeters Edwina Thorne from New Zealand, and Lindsay Smith, from Australia, perform a showcase of Herb Alpert classics at the Bay of Islands Jazz and Blues Festival this year.

They are part of a seven-piece band featuring Dave Lakeman, of Australia, on baritone saxophone.

Well known entertainer Edwina Thorne joins exceptional trumpeter and high note specialist expat Lindsay Smith, who left New Zealand to tour with Jesus Christ Superstar in 1987.

Lindsay has played many shows and is a band director, brass tutor and brass and woodwind repairer near the Blue Mountains in Sydney.
