14th April 2018 Stowe School
Featuring Jacqui Dankworth and Christian Garrick
For this irresistible feast of songs, Grammy-Award-winning singer Jacqui Dankworth is joined by an all-star line-up: award-winning composer and jazz pianist David Gordon; Ben Davis, whose group Basquiat Strings have been Mercury-nominated; and Christian Garrick, widely recognised as the UK’s leading jazz violinist.
Four fantastic musicians, a wonderfully transparent sound-world – by turns magical, witty, powerful – and a panoply of seductive rhythms, cutting-edge improvisation and lyrics, at once heart-rending, joyous and surreal.
Tonight Butterfly’s Wing perform songs and pieces from their brand new album Le Depart released in 2018 on Flying Blue Whale Records and distributed by Proper Note Music.
“I was spellbound by the tranquil and spacious atmosphere created by the mellifluous Butterfly’s Wing. I often had the impression of a much larger ensemble.”
‘The most expressive voice of her generation.’ The Observer
‘Jacqui Dankworth is one of our finest singers, regardless of category.’ Sunday Times
