£8 - £10
IMG_0561

You can hear classic blues and jazz singers everywhere in endless cafés and bars. The songs and their singers seem to have been appropriated by ‘cappuccino culture’. It is as if they have become a ‘code’ for sophistication, relaxation, and generalised coolness. Yet they are always in the background, like an ‘acoustic wallpaper conspiracy’.

A live music, multimedia presentation with Natalie Davies (Vocals) and Dave Merrick (Guitar).

In this multimedia performance we want to ‘bring them back to life’ by performing classic blues and jazz songs, and offering some history of the songs and the singers. We will also show audio visual material of some of our favourite classic jazz and blues singers. We will perform live songs recorded by Billie Holiday, Bessie Smith, Sarah Vaughan, Ella Fitzgerald, Dinah Washington and Nina Simone.

Doors open 7.30pm, performance from 8pm.

Full bar available from 7.30pm, no under 18s unless accompanied by an adult.
