Featuring jazz vocalist SARA DOWLING (BEST JAZZ VOCALIST, BRITISH JAZZ AWARDS 2019 ) and an opening set from the FARNHAM BIG BAND.
One of the most exciting voices of today’s Jazz world, Sara Dowling was voted best vocalist for the British Jazz Awards 2019 and often guests with the Ronnie Scott’s All Star Band. Sara is a jazz singer who is deeply inspired by the repertoire of the classic American songbook, her most important influences are Sarah Vaughan and Betty Carter. The fabulous fearlessness with which she approaches the act of singing, the burning conviction, the irresistible communicative power and jaw-dropping musicality she brings to it makes Sara one of the UK’s leading Jazz vocalists.
