2021 ABC JAZZ SCHOLARSHIP RECIPIENT

“Hilary Geddes is already a strikingly distinctive guitarist” – Sydney Morning Herald

Freedman Fellowship Award winning guitarist and composer Hilary Geddes is an emerging star of the Australian scene – in demand among jazz circles and contemporary music alike. Her exceptional talents see her performing alongside jazz luminaries such as Mike Nock, Lakecia Benjamin (USA) and Barney McAll and supporting bands such as Wolfmother, Hoodoo Gurus and Violent Soho.

In 2021, Hilary was awarded an ABC Jazz Scholarship and released her album Parkside on ABC Jazz, which went on to receive critical acclaim and praise in the Australian press. After touring this album extensively with her tight-knit quartet, Geddes makes her debut at MIJF 2022 to perform works from this stunning album.
