One of Britain’s most treasured jazz singers, award-winning Claire Martin OBE, will join forces with friend of 30 years, legendary saxophonist & singer Ray Gelato, in a A Swingin’ Affair

This pair of beloved British performers celebrate the music of the Great American Songbook through a collection of specially arranged duets will be performing at the South Holland Centre in Spalding on Thursday, 29 January.

Classics include Orange Coloured Sky, That Old Black Magic, They All Laughed, Let’s Call the Whole Thing Off and Come Dance With Me.

Claire says of the show: “Ray and I go back many years, he gave me my first musical break in my late teens! It’s wonderful that we have come full circle to put this show together. We are both passionate about this music and share the same love of great songs, which we will be singing and swinging with the world-class pianist Dave Newton.

If you like your music sassy, sharp and swinging - this is the show for you... A swingin’ affair indeed.
