Rebecca Downes 'Unplugged and In Conversation'

Event Has Passed

Last Show: Sunday 20 th January 2019

PizzaExpress Jazz Club (Soho)

Birmingham-based Blues/Rock artist Rebecca Downes was voted Female Vocalist and Emerging Artist of the Year at the British Blues Awards 2016 and Female Blues Vocalist of the Year in the FORM UK Blues Awards 2018. This gig will be a real treat for existing and new fans as Rebecca and co-songwriter Steve Birkett, accompanied by guitarist Tara Simms, deliver an intimate show that will be a combination of new ‘unplugged’ takes on several of their original numbers from the EP 'Real Life' and the albums 'Back To The Start' and 'Believe', mixed in with conversation about the music, their inspiration, the song-writing process and the challenges of creating and performing original material. This very special show will include a ‘meet and greet’ with the audience before the performance by Rebecca and the other artists, the ‘unplugged’ live performance interspersed with facilitated audience Q&A and a post-gig meet and greet where the artists will be available to sign photos and merchandise.  

Each audience member will also receive a ‘goodie bag’ that will include a signed photo of Rebecca, a set list signed by the performers and other special items.

This is a rare chance to see Rebecca in this format in 2019. Whether you are an existing fan or someone who wants to experience local, original artists at the top of their game ‘up close and personal’, this is an evening not to be missed.
