Lizzie Cooper Sings The Great American Songbook

Tell a friend:

7th July 2015 - 8pm

Venue: Loughborough Town Hall

Join our popular, regular jazz artiste Lizzie Cooper for a special evening of music, this time set in our intimate Studio space.

Lizzie was born and grew up in Loughborough and continues to live locally. A graduate in Music from Bath Spa University, she has recently released her album You Don't Know What Love Is.

The guest performer this evening will be Bruce Adams.

Not only is Bruce one the jazz scene’s most dramatic and stimulating performers, he is also a tremendously affable companion. A band-room with the Glaswegian Mr Adams present is a happy and riotous place. His stream of jokes, anecdotes, and hilarious observations reflect an early immersion in show-biz, and a keen eye and ear for the many quirks of human nature. However, on stage, Bruce Adams takes the playing side of things very seriously. 

And he cut his musical teeth on solid commercial work – on cruise liners, in dance halls, music halls, and even worked in support of comedy legends like Tony Hancock and Freddie Starr. He has been a regular jazz poll-winner and with his spectacular range and power on the instrument has been in demand as a lead, and jazz trumpet man. Bruce has often worked as a special guest soloist with both the Scottish Radio Orchestra and the BBC Big Band. Bruce’s long-running musical partnership with saxophonist Alan Barnes has produced many plaudits and acclaimed recordings.

Please note, the line-up is subject to change.
