Sunday 3rd December 2023 - 1:30 pm
Music Charge: £14.00
“Quite simply Shireen is one of the best British Jazz vocalists of this generation”
Born in London of Jamaican and Goan heritage Shireen Francis learned her craft in Afro-Caribbean music, however, inspired by artists such as Marlena Shaw, Dianne Reeves and Nancy Wilson, she soon moved seamlessly into a much more jazz-oriented repertoire. These days her performances are rich and varied, including her own jazz and Caribbean-influenced originals. This afternoon Shireen will be bringing her excellent band to the Club, featuring Dominic Grant-guitar & Mark Cherrie-steel pan. As Shireen says "Expect an immersive and heartfelt Caribbean journey across the waters". Sounds fun!
