Shireen Francis with Gunther Kurmayr (piano), Josh Kemp (tenor sax), Manuel Alvarez (double bass) and Dave Ingamells (drums)
Shireen Francis returns for a third visit to Lauderdale House! Every time, her warm and engaging personality make an incredible impact - she is one of those artists who really believes in taking her audience along with her.
Francis is totally at ease with the classic American Songbook - as her tribute to Peggy and Ella on her last visit to the House demonstrated so well – as well as relating to the blues and gospel influences of artists like Aretha Franklin, Etta James and Nina Simone.
“A brilliant vocalist whose beguiling performance left me wanting more" - Jazzwise magazine.
Shireen has forged a great relationship with her musicians, led by the formidable pianist Gunther Kurmayr. They go well beyond the 'singer with pick up Trio' formula.
Shireen Francis performs as part of this season's Jazz in the House, alongside Gunther Kurmayr, Josh Kemp, Manuel Alvarez and Dave Ingamells. Doors open at 8pm and the concert begins at 8.30pm. The bar will be open from late afternoon for drinks and snacks.
