Join the multi-award winning jazz singer and entertainer, Ian Shaw, as he presents this very special and intimate concert featuring a selection of his favourite music. 

The concert will draw from the rich vein of the Great American Songbook through to cherished contemporary songwriters such as Joni Mitchell, Leonard Cohen, David Bowie and Stevie Wonder - alongside anecdotes from his life on the road and more. There’ll also be a sprinkling of Shaw’s pithy original lyrics that draw on the quirkiness of the human condition – a satirical take on good living, dodgy politics, as well the perils of yoga at 60(!)

Ian has been a staple on the British jazz scene for over three decades and is widely regarded as one of finest male jazz singers it has produced. Whether performing solo at the piano, or as the special guest with orchestras, he remains the consummate entertainer and his recordings and live performances have been recognised by numerous awards over the years, including ‘Best Male Vocalist’ at the BBC Jazz Awards and also the Parliamentary Jazz Awards.

For more than ten years he has presented the weekly Ronnie Scott’s Radio Show on Jazz FM and has recently added podcasting to his repertoire, with “Not Even Music” now in its third series.

“A brilliant vocal chameleon . . . there’s actually more heart in Ian Shaw’s cleverness than in many singers who wear their hearts conspicuously on their sleeves” Telegraph
