Jazz Festival 2018

Clare Teal Trio

2018 will be the 9th festival and we are delighted to be able to announce the first headline guest. One of the UK’s greatest interpreters of song and much loved performers, Clare Teal, and her trio, will headline at The Grand on Friday, May 4th. This will be the first time Clare has performed in Clitheroe since 2013.

Clare Teal

As much as she loves fronting her Big Band or her Hollywood Orchestra, award winning vocalist and Radio 2 presenter Clare Teal still revels in performing in more intimate venues accompanied by piano, bass and drums.

From swing to sublime ballads, Clare’s concerts with her Trio are renowned across the country for their fabulous arrangements interspersed with Clare’s warm and witty storytelling guaranteeing the audience something personal and very special.
The rich, jazz infused repertoire explores 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.

The eclectic song list will include music from Cole Porter, Billy Strayhorn, Rodgers and Hammerstein, honouring the likes of Ella Fitzgerald, Lena Horne, Nina Simone, Nancy Wilson and Peggy Lee.
Clare and her Trio promise a sparkling night of inspired music and unbridled entertainment, performed by the very best.
