Duo Nuevo features a pairing of Ashley Kennedy on vocals and flute, with Reinhard Fochtberger on piano, performing an array of Jazz & Latin Jazz Standards.
Ashley Kennedy began an early musical education in piano, and later the flute. Pairing her love for Jazz with her time spent in South America, she has developed a passion for Latin Jazz in particular and has been developing her talent as a vocalist as well, specializing in Brazilian Portuguese.
Born and raised in Germany, Reinhard Fochtberger became an accomplished Classical pianist at an early age. Upon immigrating to Canada he continues to develop his skill here in Niagara where he enjoys exploring Jazz piano through this venture in Duo Nuevo.
Ashley Kennedy and Reinhard Fochtberger have been performing together as Duo Nuevo throughout the Niagara Region for over 2 years specializing in Jazz standards, show tunes and Latin Jazz. Their shared passion for musical performance, and Jazz in particular, led them to take on this venture together.
While Duo Nuevo usually features Ashley Kennedy vocally, this performance will focus on range of instrumental Jazz tunes with flute and piano. Their flair for Brazilian Jazz in particular makes this Duo unique.
