Sara Dowling - with The Music of Judy Garland

Jazz Divas 2019

Thursday May 9

Sara Dowling -
with The Music of Judy Garland

at Pizza Express Live:  Pheasantry 

Sara explores the career and catalogue of one of Hollywood’s brightest yet most troubled stars in an evening of swing, poignancy and anecdote.

Sara is now recognised as one of the UK's leading jazz vocalists. She is a regular performer at Ronnie Scotts  and the 606 Club and becoming known for her interpretations of classic ballads, leaving audiences spell bound, as well as the energy and vigour with which she tackles the up tempo standards from the American Song Book. 

Her distinctive voice owes much to her Irish father and Lebanese mother,  surrounded by the  records of her father's jazz collection and the chant like voices of Lebanese singers. Sara's album From Shadows Into Light received a five star review from Jazz Journal.

Sara is accompanied by Chris Ingham – piano, Dario DiLecce – bass & George Double - drums

 

 “ Her voice has all the qualities that you find in the great singers" – Guy Barker

 

Doors open 7pm.

Music at 8.30pm
