Caterham Jazz and blues festival at the Miller Centre Theatre.
We are delighted to welcome Jo Harrop and band to the Jazz Festival for the first time.
Inspired by the coolness of jazz divas such as Julie London and Anita O’Day, and the emotion of late night ballads by Sarah Vaughn and Billie Holiday, Jo Harrop and her band perform well loved standards from the American songbook – capturing the swinging spirit of 1940s and 50s recordings.
Durham born jazz singer Jo Harrop has a voice that is warm, intimate and sincere. She is no stranger to performing at the top clubs and radio stations, notably garnering praise from luminary composer Howard Blake OBE and jazz pioneer Courtney Pine CBE and she has appeared at major jazz festivals all over Europe as well as being a regular at London’s famous ‘Hideaway’ club. An entertaining evening of beautifully sung classic jazz favourites. “A singing sensation – her voice is amazing”
