Beyond The Blue Horizon
One of the perks of organising a festival is the opportunity to bring together great musicians. Jade Harris is a local singer who is really starting to make a name for herself. She has performed with guitarist Adrian Ingram numerous times and their bluesy styles are perfectly matched. Dan Nicholas has also performed with Adrian in The Hague but never in the UK. Joined by Jeremy Platt on organ and Paul Smith on drums both highly skilled an experienced musicians this should be a unique event not to be missed.
Jade sings jazz but with a more bluesy edge and more than a passing nod to Billie Holiday. She performs regularly with folk, jazz, trio, ‘Band of Jays’, and has worked with many musicians from the local jazz scene as well as doing session work and song writing for various projects for TV, film and radio
