Polly Gibbons is a major presence on the UK Jazz scene, having been nominated twice as "Best Jazz Vocalist" by JAZZ FM and the BBC. She embraces the inspiring expansiveness of American Jazz, Blues, Soul and R&B. Her repertoire and the style with which she performs it, have led her to appear at the Royal Albert Hall, opening with George Benson and Gladys Knight and at the legendary Birdland Jazz Club and Ronnie Scott’s. Her music and her voice have a broad appeal to music lovers - and her ongoing touring over the last few years in the USA has garnered her many new fans. No better artist to launch our 2020 series and with the music of Ray Charles and Nina Simone.
“Polly Gibbons is unmistakably a class act, getting classier fast.*****”- The Guardian
