12:00 - 2:00 Hanna PK
Sometimes, you have to leave to arrive. Hanna did and found what she was born to do. She is a vocalist, pianist, and band leader born in South Korea, currently residing in Rochester NY. She fell in love with the Blues and has performed with both Joe Beard and John Cole. On stage, Hanna’s seemingly sweet and soft-spoken appearance belies her commanding voice and presence at the piano with an impeccably steady and strong left hand bass, and a swinging and shuffling right hand dancing over it.
In June 2018, Hanna and guitarist Alex Disljenkovic won 1st place at Memphis Bound and will be going to Memphis to represent WNY at the International Blues Challenge in January 2019. The Blues just don’t get much better than that !
