IAN SHAW: When Bowie Met Joni
Friday 16th September
Multi-award-winning singer, Ian Shaw fuses the words and music of two of popular music's chameleonic, genius giants, Joni Mitchell, and the much-missed David Bowie. Traversing the mammoth back catalogue of these legendary artists, this unmissable show is a highly personal journey from the endless summers of the early seventies and New York's East Village to "our own ideals" of love, hope and the endless presence of the darker truths of recent times. This is a highly charged show of tears, laughter-and simply great song writing.
"Jazz singer Ian Shaw is almost too talented for his own good...a brilliant vocal chameleon" - The Telegraph
"Great jazz singers, like great comedians, are masters of timing. That Ian Shaw is a virtuoso of bothdisciplines, balancing stand-up and concert gigs, speaks to the breadth of his genius and to thesingularity of his style as a singer" - Jazz Times (USA)
