Award winning jazz vocalist and Radio 2 presenter Clare Teal’s concerts with her Trio are constantly evolving and renowned across the country for their fabulous arrangements interspersed with Clare’s warm and witty storytelling.
This brand new show promises a rich jazz infused repertoire in its many forms bringing you more exhilarating swing as Clare and her Trio celebrate 100 years of pop music featuring some of the greatest songs ever written from the Great American and British Song Books and contemporary writers creating the standards of today.
Yorkshire-born Clare Teal is one of the UK’s most celebrated and much loved singers. With her stunning voice, encyclopaedic knowledge of jazz, swing and big band music, and her innate warmth and wit, Clare is a sought after singer throughout the country as well as a prolific recording artist and popular BBC Radio 2 broadcaster.
Her most recent album, ‘Twelve O’Clock Tales’, was released in 2016 and recorded with the Hallé, conducted by Stephen Bell. August 2017 saw Clare produce and present her third full scale BBC Prom Concert to a packed audience at the Royal Albert Hall. Featuring two roaring Big Bands led by Guy Barker and Winston Rollins and some very special guests, ‘Swing No End’ celebrated the triumphs of big band greats from the ‘30s and ‘40s and the show was broadcast on BBC Four and BBC Radio 2 and Radio 3.
