Crystal Jade / Martin & Coole Live at Northbridge Piazza

East meets West with the beautiful Crystal Jade featuring Stella Huang on yangqin (Chinese hammer dulcimer), Merlin Ma on bamboo flute and Malcolm Mah on double bass. Together they perform an enchanting instrumental blend of traditional oriental music and contemporary Chinese pop tunes.

Martin & Coole are a contemporary folk swing blues duo from Beaconsfield in Western Australia. The duo use close vocal harmonies, guitar, ukulele and mandolin embellished with diverse acoustic instrumentation including dobro, banjo, violin, harmonica, double bass, plus the yangqin, the traditional Chinese hammer dulcimer. The songs are generally set in a local West Australian context sharing modern and old stories; like the true tale about a friend that spent a night in a maximum-security prison for not wearing his bicycle helmet; a FIFO (Fly-in Fly-out) widow’s lament; or the trad style folk ballad about Goongarrie, a Goldfields ghost town out near Lake Ballard in central Western Australia.

Crystal Jade / Martin & Coole is the third concert in the City of Perth's four part Horizons Sunday Concert Series, held on 10, 17, 24 and 31 March in Northbridge Piazza, celebrating the cultural diversity of Western Australia.
