Benefit for Anita Wardell Photo 1

Tonight we are hosting a Benefit gig for the highly respected multi-award-winning singer Anita Wardell. Noted for her mesmerising interpretation of lyrics and captivating vocal improvisations, earlier this year Anita suffered a serious medical event and as a result is currently unable to work. Her many friends have organised this Benefit tonight as an expression of their love and respect for her, as well as to help her through this difficult time.

It's a mark of Anita’s standing that the list of artists who have asked to perform tonight is a veritable who's who of the International Jazz scene, including singers Norma Winstone MBE, Claire Martin OBE, Cleveland Watkiss MBE, Jacqui Dankworth MBE, Georgia Mancio, Ian ShawDaniela Clynes and many more. These remarkable performers will be supported by Anita’s own rhythm section of Robin Aspland-piano, Jeremy Brown-bass & Steve Brown-drums alongside special guests including Charlie Wood and Pete Churchill-piano/vocals, Winston Clifford and Dave Ohm-drums & Geoff Gascoyne-bass. A special evening of music for a very special performer.

“Winstone…there is no jazz singer in the country to touch her” The Times; “Martin…ranks among the four or five finest female jazz vocalists on the planet” Jazz Times
