Claire’s Big Apple warm up gigs ahead of Sage gig

Tonight (Monday) and again tomorrow night if you happen to be in New York you could  get along to Dizzy’s Coca-Cola Club at Lincoln Center to lend your support to the UK’s Claire Martin. Our girl is in town for a couple of gigs before flying home to prepare for her forthcoming appearance with the Northern Sinfonia at Sage, Gateshead (May 26) in a concert devoted to Beatles’ classics - ‘Two of Us’: The Lennon and McCartney Songbook. Her Big Apple shows are with a non-too shabby ‘local’ trio - Nikolaj Hess (piano), Peter Washington (bass) and drummer Matt Wilson. Admission: $30 ($10 with valid student ID). Knock ‘em for six, Claire (or should that be a ‘home run’?).

Apart from the delectable Claire Martin, the concert at Sage Gateshead also features pianist/singer Joe Stilgoe and singer/actor Mark McGann.
