Zoe for London Jazz Festival.

(Preview by Steve T/Photo courtesy of Ken Drew )
Last year it was the face of Emma Fisk beaming up at you from the EFG website and this year it's another of our leading ladies, strawberry-blond bombshell Zoe Gilby, accompanied purely coincidentally by our very own innovative bass blaster Andy Champion.
Her natural warmth and charisma, not to mention a healthy dose of North East charm, and very much the classier end of the scale, ensure she's perfect for hosting a kids’ event in the Capital. The sessions are for age 5+ and are always popular and amongst the first to sell out each year and I know they'll both be fabulous.
Tickets are on sale from 10am on Friday 8th July priced £5 - £10.
The performance is at Cadogan Hall on Saturday November 12th from 2pm to 3pm.
Here’s what the EFG publicity machine has to say:
Saturday 12 November, Cadogan Hall – 2pm matinee
A sell-out triumph in previous years, this year’s Family Jazz All-Stars showcases the stunning vocals of Zoe Gilby in an unmissable and friendly show for all the family.
Zoe lends her captivating style to this fun-filled tribute to jazz singers past and present, sharing the stage with a line-up of highly accomplished jazz musicians.
Including songs from jazz down the years, as well as her distinctive take on popular classics, this promises to be perfect for all the family, from children to grandparents. So bring the whole clan and enjoy an energetic whistle-stop journey through jazz like no other!

London? A local gig for these two - End of this month they're booked to play at the Roland Jazz Festival in Romania - hopefully before Article 50 is brought into play!
