Worcester Editorial 6th Jan, 2014 Updated: 19th Oct, 2016   0

THE PERFECT remedy for the winter blues is coming to the city on Friday (January 10).

Val Wiseman, who is well known to Midlands audiences, will be singing songs once synonymous with the likes of Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, Peggy Lee and Sarah Vaughan in her show Divas of Swing at Barbourne Ex Services Club in The Moors.

Val has sung with some of Britain’s legendary bands including those of Humphrey Lyttelton, Monty Sunshine, Kenny Baker and Alex Welsh.

She will be supported by Tom Hill on bass, Keith Bill on keyboards and Carl Hemmingsley on drums.

Worcester Jazz, which has organised the night, is dedicated to staging top quality music and the Friday sessions are proving very successful.

Anyone who enjoys jazz and is able to travel to the centre of Worcester is urged to join some like-minded people and support their local jazz club.

In addition, membership of the club will gives discount on entry and a discount will also apply to jazz events at Huntingdon Hall.

There’s also a car sharing scheme in operation for anyone who is concerned about driving at night. Full details are on the website, www.worcesterjazz.org.uk.

The show starts at 8pm, doors open at 7pm. Tickets are available on the door and cost £10 or £9 for members. There’s ample car parking and a licensed bar plus the option of tea or coffee.
