Seven of Bristol’s very best female vocalists join forces for this special show at St George's commemorating the legacy of Jazz Dames like Billie Holiday, Ella Fitzgerald, Peggy Lee, Nina Simone and Sarah Vaughan.
Backed by the George Cooper Trio – Emily Wright, Tammy Payne, Katya Gorrie, Nadine Gingell, Lucy Moon, Molly King and Victoria Klewin will perform classics from jazz’s ‘Golden Age’ when nightclubs and concert halls reverberated to the sounds of the Great American Songbook.
The glorious, natural acoustics of St George’s will provide the perfect setting for this powerful, yet intimate performance where each of our guest vocalists will choose three songs associated with the great Jazz Dames.
This is a unique opportunity to hear some of Bristol’s finest vocalists – each a star in her own right – perform together for the first time.
This special concert will also see the official launch of Bristol International Jazz & Blues Festival’s 2016 line-up.
