24 March: Liza Pulman and Joe Stilgoe – A Couple of Swells
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.
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 has established her as an acclaimed concert performer and recording artist with a talent for re-discovering, re-inventing and re-imagining timeless classics and lost gems. Her connection to a song and to a lyric is what separates her from the crowd and takes her right to the heart of every ballad and every note that she sings. Her connection to an audience is just as impressive as her myriad 5* reviews have all noted: it’s not just her flawless vocals but also her easy wit and natural story-telling that make her one of the most compelling performers of her day.
Joe is an internationally acclaimed singer, pianist and songwriter. He has created a fresh sound for jazz in the 21st century, known for writing songs that feel like they’ve been around for years, and adapting classics that sound as though they were just written. He has released 8 albums, five of which have topped the UK Jazz chart. He works extensively on radio having hosted and starred many times in BBC Radio 2’s Friday Night is Music Night, while also being a regular guest and presenter on JazzFM, Radio 3 and 4. On TV he has appeared most notably hosting BBC Young Jazz Musician of the Year, and least notably in Bargain Hunt!
