A special treat awaits with Jacqui Hicks. Described by the Yorkshire Post as “A singer of warmth, poise and intelligence, whose smokey voice is a pleasure to listen to”. Jacqui started her musical career on the recorder before switching to clarinet before working with  the National Youth Jazz Orchestra where she discovered her singing voice. She went on to join the funk band Shakatak with whom she toured the world since when she has gone on to forge a career as a jazz singer of considerable note

She is joined by trumpeter Martin Shaw who is a graduate of the Royal Academy of Music in London. Since then he has worked with a veritable who’s who of leading jazz artists including Cleo Laine, John Dankworth and Dick Morrisey as well as the BBC Big Band. Jacqui and Martin will be playing with the Jim Thorn trio for an evening of music magic.

Expect an eclectic mix of jazz standards with some popular songs with a jazz makeover.

This event will take place in the Ballroom at Northwood House.
