CHRISTINE TOBIN – It Might As Well Be Spring
with Phil Robson guitar, Dave Whitford double bass & a surprise special guest.
The Irish-born vocalist and songwriter is renowned for her unique, rich voice and original compositional style. With ten highly-acclaimed solo albums and four major awards under her belt, Christine is treasured in the UK and beyond as one of the leading lights on the contemporary scene. Her authentic and expressive sound was described by The Guardian as “Tobin’s 24 carat voice”. She won ‘Jazz Vocalist of the Year’ at the 2014 ‘Parliamentary Jazz Awards’.“….Christine Tobin really transcends glib genre-fication. Her expressive range acknowledges finely acquired folk, jazz and 20th-century classical influences, which already sets her apart. And everything is shot through with an unmistakable refinement, free-spirited earthiness and giddy romanticism, this singer-songwriter is in a field of one.” MOJO ****
