Biographies

Lindley Evans, born in Capetown on 18th November, 1895, began his musical career very early, and at nine was already a member of St. George's Cathedral choir, Capetown. He later became a timpanist, but after moving to Australia in 1912 he studied piano performance and composition with Frank Hutchens at the NSW Conservatorium of Music. He was to play together with Frank Hutchens as duo-pianists for 40 years until Hutchens' death in 1965 in a car accident. After his studies with Hutchens, Evans later went to study in London with Tobias Matthay. For many years, from 1922, Evans was accompanist to Dame Nellie Melba.

As a leader of the Australian Music Camp movement, as the "Melody Man" on the ABC Children's Session, and as duo-pianist with Hutchens, Lindley Evans became known to thousands of Australian music lovers, young and not so young.
