August/September 2010 Leah tours Australia with Aled Jones

 

Leah tours Australia, performing with Aled Jones and his musical director Robert Scott.

A trip to Australia would not be the same without working with Leah Zweck and the fine musicians she sources.

I have had the pleasure  of working with Leah in her capacity as musician and fixer many times and have always been so impressed by her musicianship and work ethic.

She is a true professional and a pleasure to have on tour.

She makes sure the whole touring party is happy, both on and off the platform.

I look forward to many more happy years of working together.
