Saturday 18 May 7.30pm
Alongside Marilyn Monroe and James Dean, Billie Holiday is one of the great American popular idols immortalised by their premature and tragic deaths.
This is no ordinary concert, but a lovingly created tribute to the finest of all jazz singers, performed brilliantly, movingly and sensitively by the remarkable Val Wiseman and an exceptional group of award winning musicians, Digby Fairweather, Roy Williams, Robert Fowler, Brian Dee, Pat McCarthy, Len Skeat and Bobby Worth.
Val Wiseman currently holds the British Jazz Award for Best Jazz Vocalist and, along with her multi award winning seven piece band, delivers a stunning and memorable performance that brings the audience close to how it was back then - Harlem, New York, the 1930s, 1940s, 1950s when the iconic Billie Holiday reigned supreme.
