    The opening concert of the 2018 Bromsgrove Festival brings one of Britain's finest jazz singers, Jacqui Dankworth, and her band for an exciting evening of jazz singing and music. Through a diverse repertoire arranged and curated by Jacqui, and performed alongside her stellar group of musicians, the concert celebrates the music of the "Jazz Sirens", including Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holliday and Peggy Lee, whose legacy and influence defined a classic era of jazz singing. 

    Jacqui Dankworth:

    Daughter of Dame Cleo Laine and Sir John Dankworth, it’s no surprise that Jacqui Dankworth is regarded as one of the UK’s finest jazz vocalists.  Although known primarily as a jazz singer, Dankworth was described by The Sunday Times as “one of our finest singers, regardless of category” and has collaborated with a diverse array of musicians and groups throughout her career including Marvin Hamlisch, Paloma Faith, Alan and Marilyn Bergman and Chick Corea. She is also an accomplished actress, having performed leading parts with The Royal Shakespeare Company, The National Theatre and in London West End musicals including Steven Sondheim’s Into the Woods.
