Tessa Souter in North London next Tuesday

We rarely publicise gigs outside of the northeast unless it's a one where we have a presence or it involves a favourite of ours.
Tessa Souter is just such a person, Tessa became a favourite when she wowed the normally blasé Cherry Tree audience in 2016 accompanied by the Pete Gilligan Trio (see pic).
Pete, Paul Grainger and Russ Morgan gave the New York singer the support she deserved and the music lived up to the late jazz eaterie's reputation for providing the best in food and jazz every Monday evening - ah! those were the days.
Tessa is in London on a flying visit and has asked me to mention a gig she's picked up at short notice and, coming only days after the EFG when fans are maybe jazz-lagged, it may need a wee push.
So, here we go.*
Lance.
Tessa Souter w. Sean Hargreaves, Neville Malcolm and Winston Clifford @ The Woodman, 414 Archway Rd., London N6.
Nov. 27 start 8pm. Free.
*Tessa's most recent CD Picture in Black and White has received rave reviews.
