GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) Two talented women took to the stage Wednesday night to help the Mesa County Pro Bono Project. Songwriter Trysette and pianist Fiona Joy Hawkins performed live on the CMU campus at the Moss Performing Arts Center.

The two hail from Australia and take their audience on a journey through pop, folk, new age, and classical music. On Wednesday afternoon they took the time to visit with some young aspiring musicians who share their love of performing. This is the second time the group has done this in Grand Junction.

"I’m really excited, because I had a really fun time last time, and I’d also like to show them how I’ve progressed and maybe play a song for them or something," says Kaity Detmers, a fan of the group.

The students were then invited to join the duo on stage during the show for one song.

"When we were children we all had people we looked up to and were inspired by and I think it can be a turning point in your life. It's giving something back in the arts and it's really important” say Trysette and Fiona Joy Hawkins.

The Mesa County Pro Bono project increases the quality and availability of free legal services for the poor and victims of domestic violence. The concert helped to support their mission.
