Roberta Hunt: December 15, 2018
With her personal and exuberant approach, Roberta adds her own voice to the jazz and blues repertoire. With a rootsy and bluesy style, Roberta was described by one music writer as “Mix big piano with beautiful voice, add some attitude and a lot of charisma. With a penchant for those you-done-me-wrong songs and her musical roots in the jazz and spirituals of New Orleans: a picture of Roberta Hunt starts to emerge…“. In addition to solo vocal/piano performances, Roberta stays active in the Toronto/Southern Ontario music scene with her Trio, Red Hot Ramble and swing dance group 'Bertie and the Gents'.
Roberta has also participated in the French Quarter Festival in New Orleans; Davos Sounds Good Festival, Davos; Rapperswil Jazz Festival, Switzerland; Jazz in Mortigliano, Italy as well as Southern Ontario jazz festivals over her career.
