The celebrated singer Jacqui Dankworth, following her previous London sold out musical excursions at Crazy Coqs and London Jazz Festival Concerts at The Other Palace comes to the Jazz Divas 2020 Series at The Pheasantry with Butterfly’s Wing, a unique chamber jazz group of four outstanding musicians, to perform original music interspersed with new arrangements of classic songs.

Jacqui invites us into her wonderfully transparent sound-world - by turns magical, witty, powerful – with a range of seductive rhythms, cutting-edge improvisation and lyrics, at once heart-rending, joyous and surreal.
“ Spine-tinglingly beautiful. The most expressive voice of her generation”. -The Observer
