Join the effervescent, stylish singer and violin maestro Lizzie Ball, with her brand new Swing Into Summer trio, for an evening of stylish, swinging music designed to get your feet tapping and put a big smile on your “happy to be here” face.
A prolific performer, Lizzie has been on the international stage for two decades as a multi genre violinist, vocalist, bandleader and founder of Classical Kicks Productions. She founded Classical Kicks in 2012 to bring classical music out of the concert hall to a wider audience, with diverse performers, with key performances including at Bestival and a residency at Ronnie Scott’s Jazz Club (both upstairs and main house). In 2018, she was awarded an honorary degree for her services to music by University of Derby, featured in The Daily Mail as one of the UK’s 50 most inspirational females making an impact, and in 2020 she was made Guest Director of Vilnius based dynamic young chamber orchestra, ‘Mikroórkestra’. Her multi-faceted achievements also include as soloist/orchestra leader for a variety of artists, projects and tours including a performance at Madison Square Gardens, working with Hugh Jackman,Jeff Beck, Brian Wilson,, Ariana Grande and Liam Gallagher, aswell as long- term collaboration with Nigel Kennedy as Leader of his Orchestra of Life. Lizzie also regularly fronts her band at Ronnie Scotts.
Tonight , at The Crazy Coqs, she brings her eclectic Grappelli -esque style to Swing into Summer accompanied on guitar by the young British virtuoso producer arranger and performer Nick Fitch, working regularly with Claire Martin, Tina May, James Hudson and others and on double bass by Misha Mullov-Abbado, making waves not only as a key member of The Tom Green Sextet but also as leader of his own seven piece ensemble at top London jazz venues.
