When Ella Met Frank

The Voice’s Celestine Walcott-Gordon and trumpeter Denny Ilett take centre stage tonight at this fundraising concert for the Bristol International Jazz and Blues Festival. Walcott-Gordon will step into Ella Fitzgerald’s shoes to sing a selection of tracks from the Great American Songbook while Ilett shares some of Ol’ Blue Eyes’ best moments. 

This is a seated show

Free music in the foyer from 18:00

To celebrate the launch of the 2015 Festival and the grand unveiling of the festival line-up, the evening will begin with some great free music in the foyer courtesy of Chirimoya and Emily Wright & the Royals.
