For parents and babies/toddlers (0-5s)
This joy-filled class offers the opportunity for parents to sing, dance and shake along to songs from around the world and original tunes.
Continuing their season featuring two generations of women-led jazz projects.
Jan Ponsford vocals with Deirdre Cartwright guitar, Alison Rayner double bass, Winston Clifford drums.
Jan Ponsford is hailed as one of the UK's best and more original jazz vocalists. Her musical sensibilities stretch further than the norm, effortlessly covering jazz, South American and Eastern European influences - a blend now considered de rigueur for jazz vocalists, with Ponsford credited as an originator of the style.
She has lived abroad for many years, so this is a rare chance to hear her live.
"Acclaimed as one of the top of the league for a long time.... her music doesn't coast or avoid the sense of inventive tension between musicians." John Fordham
plus Chelsea Carmichael Quartet
Chelsea Carmichael saxophone, Arthur O'Hara bass, Daniel Smith guitar, Ed Harley drums

After moving from the North West to London to continue her studies at Trinity Conservatoire with jazz legend Jean Toussaint, Chelsea will present a set of mostly original compositions drawing on a love for groove and funk based jazz with her fellow musicians and friends.
