Our programmer Brian Blain has been the driving force behind Jazz in the House for over 20 years. A jazz enthusiast since his teens, Brian has impeccable taste and has brought world class talent to Lauderdale House over the years. To celebrate his 90th birthday in true Brian Blain style we're welcoming the incredible Liane Carroll (vocals/piano). In honour of such an important occasion there will also be a few surprises.
From learning piano aged 3 and writing her own compositions aged 8, to becoming a professional musician at 15, Liane Carroll has since won numerous awards and toured extensively. Along the way she has collaborated with diverse variety of artists including Paul McCartney, Gerry Rafferty, Long John Baldry, Ian Shaw, Claire Martin OBE and drum and bass outfit London Elektricity.
