A spellbinding vocalist, Sue Parish performs the great songs of the 30s, 40s and 50s,
epitomized by composers such as George Gershwin, Cole Porter, Jerome Kern and
Antonio Carlos Jobim, featuring bright and breezy swing, heartfelt ballads, sultry
Latin and all points in between, and taking her cue from favourite vocalists
including Ella Fitzgerald, Anita O’Day,

Peggy Lee and Blossom Dearie.


Sue, a regular at many renowned venues and festivals including Kendal Jazz Club
and Keswick and Lancaster Jazz Festivals, has won fans of all ages with her three
octave vocal range and her ability to perform in every style from the subtlest of
whispers, via a high wire scat vocal through to a full throated blues roar, as she
explores the Great American Songbook, classic bossa nova and a few tunes a little
further off the beaten track. Her extensive repertoire makes listeners glad to be alive,
but has also been known to reduce strong men (and women!) to rubble
with a poignantly delivered torch song.


Sue will be accompanied by firebrand pianist, Andrjez Baranek. Manchester based
Andrjez has worked with an impressive array of artists, including Alan Barnes,
Don Weller, Scott Hamilton and

Enrico Tomasso, and is a member of the celebrated Magic Hat Ensemble. With a playing style characterised by elegantly stated
harmonies and rhythmically driving lines, he reached the semi-finals of the
Nottingham International Jazz Piano Competition 2010 and provides the perfect
complement to Sue's vocals.


Completing the line-up are first-rate musicians
