Port Lincoln Arts Council is holding its Annual General Meeting on Monday August 6 with Lee Gunness as special guest speaker.

Locally Ms Gunness is known as part of the duo Two Little Birds with Nick Krieg but on the national and world stage, she is a jazz legend.

Influenced by the sounds of New Orleans, she takes the spirit and soul of classic jazz, blues and gospel grooves and brings the songs to the heart of the listener with her rich, expressive velvety tone and ability to move effortlessly from the intensely dynamic to the sublimely intimate.

A seasoned professional, Ms Gunness has performed for the Prime Minister, the Governor General, and the United States ambassador to Australia, and has performed extensively at local and international jazz festivals, concerts, events and functions.

The meeting will be in the Flinders Room at the Port Lincoln Hotel from 7pm.

The committee is always looking for new people to join them. If you are interested or for more information phone Jenny 0437 038 416
