CALENDAR OF EVENTS
Hochstein at High Falls: Hanna PK Duo
Event summary
Join us for a free lunchtime concert at Hochstein at High Falls, featuring Hanna PK Duo.
Event details

Location: Granite Mills Park near the Pont de Rennes Bridge, 104 Platt Street, Rochester. Click here for a map.

The Hochstein at High Falls concert series will be following the CDC guidelines for COVID protocols. Since things are still changing on that front, more detailed guidelines will be posted on the Hochstein website closer to the concert date.

Hanna PK channels a wide variety of the blues, from pre-war styles to ‘50s and ‘60s Chicago blues to boogie-woogie, as well as influences from jazz and swing. People often use the expression ‘tickling the ivories,’ but if you see the way Hanna plays, it’s anything but tickling. Her solid left hand reflects on those traditional blues masters’ rocking and shuffling bass patterns, while her right hand grooves along, dancing all over those 88s, and also adding her sultry voice. In June 2018, Hanna and guitarist Aleks Disljenkovic won first place at Memphis Bound and represented Western New York at the International Blues Challenge in Memphis, Tenn., in January 2019. For this concert, she will be joined by drummer Tony Hiler. http://hannapk.com/index.html
