As much as she loves fronting her Big Band or her Hollywood Orchestra, award winning singer and BBC Radio 2 presenter Clare Teal still revels in performing in more intimate venues accompanied by piano.
From swing to sublime ballads, Clare’s Duo Concerts are renowned across the country for their fabulous arrangements interspersed with Clare’s warm and witty storytelling guaranteeing the audience something personal and very special.
The rich, jazz infused repertoire explores timeless classics penned by the legendary musical storytellers of the last 100 years, and celebrates giants of the Great American and British Songbooks through to the work of more contemporary writers crafting the standards of today plus Clare’s own original compositions.
The eclectic song list, with music from Cole Porter, Billy Strayhorn, Rodgers and Hammerstein, Tim Rice to Sting, and honouring the likes of Ella Fitzgerald, Nina Simone, Nancy Wilson and Peggy Lee, will include a selection of material from her new album Twelve O’Clock Tales.
As one of the UK’s greatest interpreters of song and much loved performers, Clare and her pianist promise a sparkling night of inspired music and unbridled entertainment, performed by the very best.
