On July 11, Clare’s vocals and Jason’s jazz piano will produce swing to sublime ballads, Clare’s duo concerts are renowned for their musicality coupled with Clare’s warm and witty storytelling guaranteeing the audience something personal.
The duo will explore a rich, jazz infused repertoire with timeless classics penned by the legendary musical storytellers of the last 100 years and celebrates giants of the Great American and British Songbooks through to the work of more contemporary writers crafting the standards of today plus Clare’s own original compositions.
