Fagan has long been established as one of Australia’s finest exponents of the 10-string Spanish guitar.
He has toured with Billy Connolly, The Buena Vista Social Club, Shirley Bassey, Natalie Cole and Michael Crawford.
Fagan performs regularly in major concert venues nationally and internationally and has performed in more than 120 countries worldwide as a soloist, with orchestra and bands including extensive touring across Europe, South America, Alaska, Canada, China, Japan and South East Asia.
Robinson is an eclectic musician and educator who has been performing professionally since the age of 14 in everything from rock, funk and fusion bands to vocal and wind ensembles, big bands, and as a soloist in his own right (piano and voice).
He is the founder of the National Youth Jazz Academy program in consultation with Bob Sedergreen, Dr Tony Gould, John Morrison, Adam Simmons, Don Burrows, Graham Lyall and the Wangaratta Festival of Jazz.
