Eddie ready to rock the gardens

11 November 2013

The Spring series of Music in the Gardens will wrap up in style with the irresistible Brazilian beats of Eddie de Brasil.

The Brazilian-born musician will be the final musical guest for the Spring series of Music in the Gardens and Events Team Leader Ros Walls said it promises to be the best concert yet.

“Eddie will bring his full band with him and it’s going to be a fantastic show. We all know South American music has a rhythm that will get you up and dancing. Once Eddie takes the stage we fully expect people to be grooving in the gardens.”

“It will be the perfect way to finish the series.”

The band is led by Brazilian producer/multi-instrumentalist Ednaldo Ignacio (Eddie De Brasil) and features the enticing sounds of Bossa-nova, Samba and more.

Ignacio was born in Sao Paulo, Brazil. He studied music at the prestigious Conservatóry Dr. Carlos de Campos in Tatuí and arrived in Australia in 1999 directing the extravagant Brazilian stage production Oba Oba. In Australia he has performed with all major Latin American bands, produced upcoming artists and composed the music for television.

The Music in the Gardens series is proudly partnered by the Murray Conservatorium. Gourmet foods, hot drinks and ice-cream will be for sale on the day. This is a smoke-free event, BYO alcohol is permitted. Limited chairs and tables are available.

The Murray Conservatorium has received $47,635 in grant funding from the State Government. The funding will secure the return of the Music in the Gardens series in 2014 with a new line up of performers, including Galapagos Duck, Janet Seidel Trio and Jane Rutter all set to appear in Autumn next year.
