James won the prestigious ‘Ike Isaacs International Jazz Guitar Award” and was nominated for the Freedman Fellowship. He can often be seen performing with Hetty around the country and overseas, and played on her quintet album (released through ABC Jazz in 2014).
Jon Delaney plays mostly in the Gypsy Jazz (Manouche) style of the legendary Django Reinhardt. He performs and tours regularly, and can be seen playing with Peter Baylor’s “Ultrafox”, vocal harmony group “The Furbelows” as well as the bad boys of French chanson “La Mauvaise Reputation”. An accomplished guitarist and composer, Jon is lauded both in Australia and overseas as one of the premiere performers in the Manouche style.. both listening and watching Jon play is always a thrill.
Since duetting with Tommy Emmanuel at the age of eleven, guitarist and composer Hugh Stuckey has gone on to be at the forefront of jazz guitar in Australia. Winning the coveted James Morrison Scholarship allowed him to study in New York, and since he has toured in Europe and Australia, and regularly performs with Australia’s finest.
