Big Sing: Live at the Lodge

N/A Tuesday 27 June 2017 #E219

The fifth year –  a festival favourite and always a sell-outnote

BBC award-winning singer-pianist  Ian Shaw gives his own personal  take on a huge range of material from American Songbook to Joni Mitchell and even Gilbert O’Sullivan.  

….”possibly the best male jazz singer to ever come out of these shores .”.
….”praised far and wide as the greatest male jazz singer Britain has to offer” Jazz Times (USA)
…“gifted, technically awesome and theatrically witty singer whose improvisational skill and gambler’s instinct work on everything”    The Guardian

His performances are both technically awesome  and emotionally charged.  Whether in a prestigious venue like London’s Barbican or an intimate club, an evening with Ian, laced with humour, is a rare treat.    We are thrilled to be bringing him to Lymm Festival .

Add to that the fifth anniversary performance of Lymm Big Sing,  featuring exciting  new arrangements as well as  old favourites by Lennon & McCartney, Sting and Queen and we can promise a Festival night to remember. 

The Lymm Big Sing was formed in  Spring  2012  to give  experienced singers and newcomers the opportunity to sing exciting modern popular music.   Providing music for such a mixed ability group – from sight readers to complete beginners is a challenge but with many years of music teaching and choir leading experience husband and wife team Michael and Susan Healey have worked together to create original arrangements that are both accessible and  interesting to the ear.   The genre is mainly popular music – from Beatles to Barry Manilow but short “serious” pieces like Pie Jesu ( Rutter) and even medieval carols have been on the agenda.
