Iain Kerr - Entertainer
After a lifetime in music, theatre, radio and television, Iain is still much in demand at private parties as a Piano-Entertainer where his unique intimate presentation is hugely successful. Years of regular television appearances on Australia’s Channel 9 network won him countless fans who appreciated his engaging personality. Later, for 25 years he reigned as Resident Pianist and Evening Host at the glamorous Mayfair Hotel in the heart of London’s West End - where the top international names in show business chose to stay.
It was there that Iain became known as the “Uncrowned King of May Fair”. When Blossom Dearie was performing in London, she would regularly spend her nights off in Iain’s musical company! There also you would often find Larry Adler, Henry Mancini, Robert Farnon and others from the musical world relaxing to Iain’s sophisticated style at his piano. When May Fair’s Connaught Hotel celebrated its 100th birthday in 1997, H.M. The Queen was Guest of Honour at the dinner, Sir Peter Ustinov was Master of Ceremonies while Iain, by request, provided the soft piano music.
