Emma Smith & Jamie Safir 'Nancy Wilson at 80'

Event Has Passed

Last Show: Saturday 22 nd July 2017

Two of the UK's finest young talents team up for a new show paying homage to the great American vocalist and actress "Fancy Miss Nancy" Wilson who turned 80 this year. No one is better equipped to take on this role than BBC Radio 3 'Jazz Now' Presenter, 'Puppini Sister' and consummate performer, Emma Smith who does so with trademark wit and glamour. Emma brings long-term collaborator, extraordinary young pianist and arranger Jamie Safir (Will Young, Ian Shaw, Claire Martin) alongside highly-demanded double-bass stalwart Adam King (Peter King, Stan Tracey, Alan Barnes) to tell the fascinating story of this prolific, three-time Grammy-winning artist.
