Sara Dowling returning to Crazy Coqs from her earlier sold-out concert, with piano and double bass accompanists, is now recognised as one of the U.K's leading jazz vocalists, awarded “Best Vocalist” in the 2019 British Jazz Awards
She is a regular performer at Ronnie Scotts and the 606 Club and enjoyed a sold out concert in her 2019 Jazz Divas Series at The Pheasantry singing the music of Judy Garland.
She is 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 Jordanian 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.
Joining Sara is the brilliant Brazillian and jazz music maker, Sam Watts on piano, -“lyrical, focussed & creative” says music producer Jason Miles and on bass by Dario di Lecce from Ronnie Scott’s Hard Bob Quartet.
