The award-winning vocalist Jacqui Dankworth is joined onstage by her husband, acclaimed American pianist-vocalist, Charlie Wood, plus a stellar trio of jazz musicians, for a unique concert of duet arrangements celebrating a century of song.

Inspired by some of the great musical partnerships, such as Ray Charles & Betty Carter, Ella Fitzgerald & Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington & Billy Strayhorn, George & Ira Gershwin, Roberta Flack & Donny Hathaway and James Taylor & Carole King, this concert features numbers including Alone Together, Autumn In New York, It Don’t Mean A Thing, A Foggy Day, The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face, You’ve Got a Friend and other favourites.

It is no surprise that Jacqui Dankworth has become known as one of the finest British singers of her generation. Daughter of Dame Cleo Laine and Sir John Dankworth, Jacqui’s musical pedigree is in no doubt. Her live concerts showcase her unique versatility and effortless mastery of a wide spectrum of genres, drawing on jazz, folk, soul and blues, as well as her acute sensibility as a songwriter and lyricist.

‘Probably the most flexible and expressive voice of her generation.’ (The Observer)

‘One of our finest singers, regardless of category.’ (The Sunday Times)

‘Makes almost any material sound special.’ (The Guardian)

‘Remember the first time you heard Dylan, or Springsteen or Costello, or Waits? Charlie Wood delivers that same jolt.’ (The Jazz Times)
