Juliet Kelly: Celebrating the Divas of Jazz – Live at Morcott Village Hall on Friday 5th October at 7.30pm
Juliet Kelly’s tribute to the jazz singers that have inspired her has proved to be extremely popular and has attracted several sell-out audiences.
The London-based vocalist, who has taken the jazz scene by storm with her velvety voice, mesmerising songs and Glam Jazz style will perform songs by much-loved singers including Nina Simone, Billie Holiday and Sarah Vaughan. Juliet’s performance introduces the audience to lesser-known gems as well as showcasing popular favourites.
Juliet has worked with outstanding musicians such as Courtney Pine, Talvin Singh and Seb Rochford and supported high profile performers like Georgie Fame and Take 6. Her three critically acclaimed albums have won her many fans and she has performed sell-out shows in venues around the UK as well as in Italy, Germany, Greece and Russia.
Juliet says, “Although I’m known as a singer and songwriter, I’ve always loved standards and usually include a couple in my set. After releasing three albums of mostly original songs, I thought it was time to go back to basics and pay tribute to those wonderful singers and songs that have influenced me. This show allows me to take the audience on a journey that revisits some of the most popular songs and singers… but I’m hoping they’ll also discover some hidden treasures! I’m delighted to be taking the show to some of the most beautiful rural parts of the country. I wonder if it’s possible to buy sequinned Wellington boots… ”
