Lucie Rejchrtová is a pianist and keyboard player from Prague. Her style ranges from old blues and boogie-woogie to modern jazz, rock and funk. Shortly after her arrival in the UK (2000) she started busking with her keyboard, accordion and blues harmonica in the London Underground and in the streets of London and the other UK and European cities such as Berlin or Amsterdam. In 2001 she joined the psychedelic rock band Instant Flight and recorded two albums with them. Two years later, while busking in the tube, she met the 60’s icon Arthur Brown, and together with Instant Flight became a part of his band ‘The Crazy World of Arthur Brown’. They have shared the stage with Eric Burdon and the Animals, Yardbirds, Country Joe and the Fish, Hawkwind, Procol Harum, Pentangle, Focus and much more. Lucie also plays with Joe Carnation, the guitarist of the legendary Czech underground band ‘The Plastic People of the Universe’, celebrated by Tom Stoppard in his play ‘Rock’n’Roll’. She also collaborates with the poet Aidan Andrew Dun known as ‘Voice of King’s Cross’, with whom she plays compositions influenced by Debussy, Stravinski and Satie, but even nu-jazz and hip-hop.
