Jan Preston is a knockout boogie pianist with a rich resonant voice who has captured audiences with her originality, energy, sparkling charm and gentle wit.
Winner of 5 music awards, Jan has sold out concerts throughout Australia, NZ, Europe and the UK, composes music for film and TV (such as the theme to ABC’s Australian Story and most recently My Year with Helen about former PM Helen Clark), and performs side-by-side with the best boogie piano players in the world.
From a background in classical music with a long-term interest in composition and song writing, Jan Preston has created her own style, not only through her piano playing but also her singing and songwriting, which now sees her shine as a truly Antipodean original.
After she broke both my wrists in 2016 Jan had to face the fact that she might not be able to play piano again, but following surgery and rehab, she is now able to perform and in 2017 promoted her new CD ‘Play It Again Jan’ throughout Australia.
Jan performed at sold out concerts in Martinborough in 2014 and 2016, and will return in January 2018.
