An internationally acclaimed jazz vocalist will be performing on stage in Welwyn Garden City this weekend.
The Liane Carroll Trio, featuring Liane on piano and vocals, will appear at Herts Jazz Club in Screen 2 of the Garden City Cinema/Hawthorne Theatre complex on Sunday.
A spokesman for Herts Jazz said: “One of the most in-demand vocalists on the British jazz scene, we’re pleased to be able to present Liane with her trio at the club for the first time.”
Double BBC Jazz Award winner Liane has been described by The Guardian as a “world-class blues and ballads singer”.
A soulful, impassioned singer and superb pianist, she is unquestionably one of the finest solo jazz cabaret performers to emerge in Britain.
Liane is a big draw at Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club in London, with a following in New York and Los Angeles.
A statement from Herts Jazz added: “She is a remarkable jazz singer and joyous entertainer who packs concert halls but still feels at home in the intimate surroundings of the jazz clubs where she first made her name.
“She’s a performer with a giant personality, unique style, captivating wit and enormous energy.”
Joining her at the Campus West venue on Sunday night from 7.30pm will be Roger Carey on bass and Mark Fletcher on drums.
As this is such a special gig, ticket prices are more expensive than normal, so it is advisable to book in advance.
Tickets cost £3 students, £13 Herts Jazz members, £16 concessions, and £17 in advance.
Walk-ups are £5 students, £16 members, £19 concessions and £20 full.
