A SENSATIONAL programme of classic blues from the ‘20s to the early ‘40s will be presented at The ARC, (St John’s Arts & Recreation Centre, St John’s Walk, Market St, Old Harlow CM17 0AJ), on Saturday 25th January at 3pm.
Returning to the venue will be the renowned chanteuse, Stella Goodey, accompanied by a hand-picked band, featuring John Petters, drums, Tim Huskisson, clarinet, Lord Arsenal, piano & trumpet, and Keith Donald, bass.
Stella is a classically trained musician and a naturally gifted singer. She specialises in singing traditional jazz, early classic blues and is the best interpreter of Billie Holiday’s style in the country, according to critics. Stella’s powerful voice is reminiscent of the classic blues artists and has been likened to Bessie Smith, Dinah Washington and blues influenced rock star, Janis Joplin.
Despite the strength in Stella’s voice, it can also emulate the sweet, vulnerability and expression of the legendary Lady Day, Billie Holiday.
A star of numerous albums, Stella is also an accomplished composer.
Jazz clubs, theatres and festivals all over the UK and Europe have welcomed this highly talented artiste in recent years.
Don’t miss this one.
The session starts at 3pm and admission is £12.
