IAN AND CLARE’S CHRISTMAS CRACKER
December 8, 2016 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Ian Shaw vocals, piano
Claire Martin vocals
Seasonal escapism with these two award-winning jazz vocalists, Claire and Ian are also both celebrated radio broadcasters (BBC and JazzFM) and their easy anecdotal stagecraft is as finely skilled as their music-making. This is an evening packed with winter warmers and classic songs from both the Jazz and pop canon. Expect 1930s New York, 1940s Christmas cinema evergreens, the gloss of Fifties Hollywood (Nat Cole, Doris Day, Eartha Kitt), the celebrated 1960s Brill Building (Carole King, James Taylor) to the darker spirits of the more contemporary writers (The Pogues, Nick Cave, Joni Mitchell).
