We’re very excited to be launching our 2015 programme with a special event that brings International Jazz Day celebrations to Hull for the first time.
The wonderful Christine Tobin, winner of Jazz Vocalist of the Year at the 2014 Parliamentary Jazz Awards, returns to Hull Truck on Thursday 30th April with I Love Elís, her tribute to the late, great Brazilian singer Elís Regina, who would have been 70 this year.
Following her warm tributes to Carole King, Leonard Cohen and WB Yeats, Tobin performs iconic Brazilian songs that have had a profound influence on her own musical vision. She’ll be performing once more with the stellar line-up of Kate Shortt cello, Phil Robson guitar & Mark Lewandowski double bass.
With support from the fabulous Lyn Acton Bossa Revista, we can’t think of a better way to start this year’s programme.
