“A pint-sized powerhouse...she has that ability to send a genuine shiver down your spine.”
PLEASE NOTE: THIS EVENT IS ALSO AVAILABLE AS A LIVE STREAM
Emma Hatton is one of the leading ladies of West End theatre, appearing in some of London’s most popular musicals, including Evita (Eva Peron), Cats (Grizabella) & Les Mis (Fantine). However, in addition to collecting awards for her acting work she is also recognised as an impressive jazz and blues singer, with appearances at premier venues including Ronnie Scott’s and the Pizza Express. In 2015, Emma recorded her first EP with Anthony Strong entitled “Merry Christmas, Darling” and both this and her most recent Vinyl EP, “Thirty Three and a Third”, shot straight to Number 1 on the iTunes jazz charts. She has also toured internationally as lead vocalist with the world-famous PostModern Jukebox, spent much of 2019 supporting Jools Holland and sold out her first Cheltenham Jazz Festival show. For this 606 performance, Emma's set will pay tribute particularly to the women of jazz, such as Nancy Wilson, Sarah Vaughan, Ella Fitzgerald and more, whose style, sounds and stories have inspired her own performances. Accompanied by John G Smith on piano and Don Richardson on bass.
