Performing on Sunday 18th we have a handful of great singers including Lou Beckerman:
Lou Beckerman has been working as a vocalist, songwriter and guitarist since the mid-70’s incorporating a wide variety of material in her work: blues, lyrical, jazz and folk. More recently she has almost exclusively returned to her roots in jazz and has fallen in love again with this wonderful and endlessly beautiful musical form. With her distinctive mix of vocal discipline and freedom, her repertoire has expanded to include Latin, swing and soft ballads through to stonking blues – delivered clearly and stylishly.
With her improvisational style, an instrumental approach to the voice and soulful sound her vocals have been described as ‘a stairway to heaven’ and ‘like being rolled in honey’.At the heart of Lou’s work has always been her love of music and her joy in using it to enhance people’s lives.
