Rural Touring with the Nicola Farnon Trio - Dates for your Diary

Nicola Farnon Trio
This close-knit, swinging outfit play classy arrangements of popular standards and a mix of swing, Latin and the moving, heart rending ballads that people never tire of. With Nicola Farnon (vocals and double bass), Piero Tucci (piano and tenor sax) and Phil Johnson (drums), you get a lot of musical talent for such a small band.  A joyfully entertaining evening of music and melody to swing yer socks off to.
Sheffields Nicola Farnon manages to combine her exceptional talents of singing and playing bass with a delightfully original and very inclusively warm and witty performance: Piero Tucci - 'a jazzer's dream, as unpretentiously skilful on keys as he is on sax’ -  is breathtaking to not just listen to but watch, especially when he decides to play both instruments simultaneously and Phil Johnson drives the whole performance with an intense and propulsive drumming method which still retains a sensitivity that allows the overall song to shine through. These three musicians combine to give a performance that will startle audiences with its genuine love of music and melody.
