Fri 5th August: Jazz Dinner with Jo Harrop and guitarist Jamie McCredie
05/08/2022 @ 7:30pm
We are delighted to welcome jazz singer Jo Harrop and guitarist Jamie McCredie to perform at our jazz dinner in August!!
Jo is a popular voice on the London jazz circuit, with a vast repertoire of music, from the likes of the great songwriters from the american songbooks and beyond. Influenced by Billie Holiday, Anita O’Day, Nina Simone, Peggy Lee, Nancy Wilson, Bessie Smith, Sarah Vaughn, Julie London & Ella Fitzgerald to name a few, but with her own distinct style, she is said to have “ All the warmth and sensibility to melt even the chilliest of hearts”. In recent years Jo is frequently seen on the stage at major music venues in London including Royal Albert Hall, The Sage, The 606 Club, Jazz Café, Pizza Express Jazz Club, Twickenham Jazz and The Savoy.
Jo & Jamie will be playing songs from their much celebrated duets Album, "Weathering The Storm” as well as other swinging jazz standards on the evening.
Here is a highly complimentary review from The Guardian of their album, https://www.theguardian.com/music/2020/may/30/jo-harrop-jamie-mccredie-weathering-the-storm-review-they-get-everything-right-gem
The Guardian dubbed it ‘a little gem of an album: simple, modest and perfect,’ whilst BBC 6 Music’s Iggy Pop fell in love with her voice, calling her “a very fine jazz singer.”
Join us on this midsummer evening for some great swingy jazz with Jo Harrop and Jamie McCredie.
