Ol’ Blue Eyes is Back

Join Clare Teal, Joe Stilgoe, The Big Buzzard Boogie Band and a chorus of 350 singers as they celebrate Frank Sinatra’s 100th birthday in spectacular style.

In a career that spanned six decades, Frank Sinatra became one of the most important musical figures of the 20th century. This special one-off event – curated by Bristol Jazz & Blues Festival Artistic Director, Denny Ilett – will feature interpretations of some of Sinatra’s biggest hits.

Pour yourself a bourbon and ‘Start Spreadin’ the News’ because Ol’ Blue Eyes is coming to town!

Clare Teal is one of the UK’s most celebrated and much loved jazz singers, as well as a prolific recording artists and popular BBC Radio 2 broadcaster. Her stunning voice, encyclopaedic knowledge of jazz, swing and big band music and her innate warmth and wit have made her one of the most sought after singers in the UK.

The Guardian calls Joe Stilgoe, ‘a jazz pianist and songwriter of considerable talent and no less charm’. His live shows are a mixture of virtuosic musicianship, breathtaking theatricality and witty interaction with the audience, combining on the spot improvisation and the quickest of wits.
