Bebop Spoken There

Lakecia Benjamin: "From my early days with Clark Terry, he told me 'they see you before they hear you'... I'm just not from that school of thought where I'm gonna wear my jeans and T-shirt on stage and that's going to be respectable." - (Jazzwise, February 2023)

This Wednesday - Beverley Beirne Quartet at The Lit and Phil September 25, 7:30pm

Just a few of the plaudits for Beverley Beirne who's on at the Lit and Phil on Wednesday.
'Finger Clicking Good! My obsession of the week.' Jenny Eels, BBC Introducing  Beverley Beirne.
Beirne is a jazz singer fast becoming known as much for her ability to innovate as for her stunning voice. A truly gifted interpreter, she sings a captivating mix of beautifully arranged standards and exciting interpretations from other genres. 'Beverley's arrangements of well known songs like 'Walk On By' make them her own. She has a wonderful feeling for interpreting numbers into a jazz context yet still keeping the original feel of the song.' UKJazzRadio
Beverley is becoming a regular at music festivals and clubs all over the country.  She is due to play at The Lit and Phil in Newcastle, The Callander Jazz Festival in Scotland, The Marsden Jazz Festival in Huddersfield and has secured a gig with The Pheasantry - one of London's most popular clubs owned by Pizza Express.  'For those of you who haven't been fortunate enough to see her yet we would advise you snap up your tickets.  For this is a woman who just oozes enthusiasm for her work and she is preparing to give 100 per cent during all her performances.' Pickled Egg
'...Beirne possesses a broad, warm lower register and her boldly held sustained notes have something of Nina Simone about them...' Jazz Journal
'A great voice with depth and true jazz interpretation.' UK Jazz Radio
Beverley brings her regular trio of: Graham Hearn – Piano; Ian Mann – Bass; Ronnie Bottomley – Drums
Tickets are available in advance £10 (£8 cons) from the Lit and Phil – 0191 232 0192
