Ipswich Civic Centre, 50 Nicholas Street Ipswich

Popular British-Australian jazz vocalist Hetty Kate is often lauded for her ‘natural musicality’, unadorned vocal style, pure tone and impeccable timing, making her one of the most sought-after jazz artists by audiences and musicians alike, including James Morrison.

Based in Paris since 2018 and gracing stages from New Zealand to New York, Hetty has fast made her mark on both the Australian and international jazz scenes, described as “the real deal” and “one of the world’s leading swing vocalists” (Will Friedwald, author and jazz critic, 2017).

Hetty tours frequently around Europe, and to the UK and Israel, and when in Australia performs at Australia’s premier jazz festivals and clubs, as well as major venues such as Melbourne Recital Centre and the Sydney Opera House.

Born in Britain and raised in Melbourne, Hetty has a classic, clear sound reminiscent of the vocalists from the 1940s and 50s, and is often compared to a young Peggy Lee or Doris Day.

Known for her pure tone, diction, faultless rhythm as well an effortless ease on stage, Hetty has a particular affinity with swing music from the 1930s and 40s.
