24 March: Liza Pulman and Joe Stilgoe – A Couple of Swells @ 1930

Fascinating Aida’s Liza Pulman teams up with acclaimed musician and singer, Joe Stilgoe, in a vibrant and entertaining potpourri of classic songs and wit, highlighting Joe’s virtuoso piano playing and Liza’s exquisite vocals.

Calstock Arts are thrilled to be the first show of the tour. Watch the video here to hear about the new show.

Liza’s thirty-year career has encompassed music, theatre and comedy, from Glyndebourne Opera through West End musical theatre and as one-third of the British satirical comedy group, Fascinating Aida. Her solo career as concert performer and recording artist showcases a talent for re-discovering, re-inventing and re-imagining timeless classics and lost gems. Daughter of celebrated screen writer Jack Pulman and actor Barbara Young, Liza’s upbringing gave her a deep love of theatre, movies and music. Liza Pulman Sings Streisand played West End runs to packed houses and five-star reviews and, most recently, her new show, The Heart Of It opened at London’s The Other Palace in January, adding extra shows in March due to public demand.

‘Quite simply, superb… Liza Pulman is a force of nature’

He’s a regular on Radio 4 on shows like Loose Ends and The Horne Section and he has worked with some of the finest orchestras and bands in the world. Joe has released 8 albums, 5 of which topped the UK Jazz chart. Joe is also a regular guest and presenter on JazzFM and Radio 3. On TV he has appeared most notably hosting BBC Young Jazz Musician of the Year, and least notably in Bargain Hunt!

‘Dapper, handsome and quick-witted, and gifted with dazzling digits.’

The Times

Liza and Joe collaborated during lockdown on the beautiful Memphis In June and on the mesmerising track Bye Bye Blackbird from Liza’s new album `The Heart Of It. The track became popular all around the world, and the many requests to play live led to creation of this show – a magical musical pairing in an evening of some of the best music ever recorded.

“Bewitches us with sheer vocal virtuosity” BritishTheatre.com
