Lauren Kinsella UK Tour, September 4-23rd
Vocalist Lauren Kinsella's star is in ascendence. In recent years, she has worked extensively with groups like Blue Eyed Hawk, Thought Fox and Snowpoet. She has won awards and delighted audiences across the country and has released albums on Edition Records, Two River Records, Diatribe and WideEarRecords. She has also taken up a post teaching voice at Leeds College of Music.
In September, Lauren will tour across the UK with a band including Tom Challenger (sax), Dan Nicholls (piano), Conor Chaplin (bass) and Simon Roth (drums) with support from the PRS Women Make Music fund.
Audiences in the North will have a number of opportunities to catch this wonderful band in action; first at Chapel Allerton Jazz Festival on September 4th, then at the Lescar on September 7th and finally at The Black Swan in Newcastle on September 8th.
One of the brightest creatve sparks to come out of the contemporary jazz vocal feld in a long while.
