International jazz artist Nicki Parrott is coming to Beechmont for one concert only.

The Australian born musician has been on the International jazz circuit for 30 years, including 10 years performing with music legend Les Paul.

She has also performed at most of the world’s top jazz venues and festivals including ‘The Jazz Cruise’ and sold out performances at Birdland and Dizzy’s in New York.
