Jazz at the Bridge House with Jo Harrop & Guest
The last Sunday of the Festival brings us a summers evening filled with Jazz.
After such an amazing three weeks of entertainment and community spirit, we are delighted to have as the last calendar event for Penge Festival 2019, a lovely, relaxing evening of Jazz Music at the Bridge House Tavern with Jo Harrop & Guest.
We are so pleased to have Jo listed in the Penge Festival line up as she really is a pretty amazing singer!
“According to Blues & Soul Magazine, Durham-born Jo Harrop “was born to sing jazz”. Her warm, intimate voice reflects her childhood absorption of the records of Billie Holiday, Anita O’Day, Julie London and Peggy Lee, the vocal masters who inspired her to sing. In the pop world she has provided backing vocals for major names including Neil Diamond and Enrique Iglesias; her co-written song ‘Little Laughter’ was recorded by Acoustic Alchemy on their album ‘Radio Contact’. She has worked all the London jazz venues including the Jazz Café where she supported The Blind Boys of Alabama; her fans include composer Howard Blake OBE and jazz pioneer Courtney Pine CBE. Jo also guested on the recent album ‘Call Me Lucky’ by Alex Webb & The Copasetics, delivering what jazzman.com called ‘a smoothly sumptuous vocal’ on the Webb original ‘End of The Affair’, with the album receiving four-star reviews in The Guardian and Evening Standard” https://www.hideawaylive.co.uk/jo-harrop-and-british-standard-time-thursday-18th-october-2018
