BBC Big Band featuring Georgie Fame

We are sorry to announce that the previously announced Georgie Fame was involved in an accident and has been admitted to hospital where he is being treated for his injuries – including a broken hip and pelvis. This sadly means that he will be unable to perform. We do hope that we will be able to arrange a rescheduled date once he is fit again, but in the meantime we wish him the very best for a full recovery.

Replacing Georgie for this performance, is the multi-award winning artist Liane Carroll.

Liane Carroll has been a pillar of the British jazz and soul scene for over thirty-five years.

Born in London and raised in Hastings; from the beginning of her musical career at the age of fifteen, she has dedicated her life to creating a deep and abiding connection with audiences all over the world through her exceptional talent, versatility and ability to truly interpret a song.

Along the way she has collaborated with such diverse artists as Paul McCartney, Gerry Rafferty, Long John Baldry, Ian Shaw, Claire Martin OBE and drum and bass outfit London Elektricity with whom she headlined in 2016 at Finsbury Parks Hospital in the Park festival. She appeared with them again at Glastonbury Festival 2017.

As a recording artist Liane has gained much critical acclaim. Her four most recent albums (Slow Down, Up and Down, Ballads, Seaside) all earned a four star review in The Guardian newspaper. Her latest release Seaside (Linn Records), homage to her life by the coast, is her third with Grammy nominated producer James McMillan of QuietMoney Studios and holds a coveted British Jazz Award for Best New CD (2015).

No upcoming performances.
