Recalling, fondly, last Sunday's Singer's Night at The Bridge

Some video memories of Splinter's memorable singer's night last Sunday at The Bridge. Here Zoe Gilby does Midnight Bell. Claire Kelly and Whisper Not. Lindsay Hannon sings Darkened Room. Ruth Lambert and the emotive Blue Valentine. Thanks to Adrian and JazzAction for these tracks. Lance.
