She is also an ABC recording artist releasing two albums of children’s songs.

Selfies highlights Kane's skill as a songwriter; a collection of crafted, heartfelt songs.

They will be playing alongside String Theories.

String Theories take their name from the complicated school of theoretical physics of the same name, threading the complexity of a jazz quarted with the detail of a classical chamber ensemble into one cohesive whole. 

They explore the world of New Acoustic music to produce evocative, intricate and sophisticated music featuring a whole range of instruments including guitar, mandolin, dobro, violin, viola and vocals.

They draw on broad influences reminiscent of Classical, Jazz, Blues and more, but falling into no particular category.

The music they create is rich and diverse, effortlessly moving between genres. They stretch far beyond the folk and bluegrass sounds inherent in the many instruments around stage.

Their debut album Waking the Deep showcases their ability to write complex, yet accessible pieces as well as their incredible facility on their chosen instruments.

They will play at the Orange Regional Conservatorium on Sunday, December 10 from 1pm to 4pm. 

Food and drink will both be available at the venue, both before the show and during interval. 

Children under 12 are admitted free, with tickets starting from $25.

Tickets can be purchased at www.ticketbo.com.au/jamorange or in person from Lander’s Music at 286 Summer Street.
