An afternoon of jazz standards and modern songs in the courtyard at Brincliffe House

About this event

An established duo with 15 years’ experience of playing together, Rosie and Jamie are intimately acquainted with the jazz standard repertoire and share a love of classic singer songwriters such as Joni Mitchell, Leonard Cohen, and Joan Baez.

Rosie has performed both nationally and internationally leading various jazz ensembles and working in different musical projects (Manchester Jazz Festival, Glasgow Jazz Festival, Edinburgh Festival, Whitby Musicport, St Ives Jazz, Wigan Jazz, Jazz in Sardinia, Womad). Rosie has taken inspiration and mentorship from legendary jazz singer, Sheila Jordan who describes her as “a very talented singer” and the Guardian was similarly complimentary, describing her as “an excellent singer comfortable with everything from scatting vocalese to relaxed and swinging standards and blues”.

Rosie was also a founder member of the acclaimed ensemble Rafiki Jazz, and she co-wrote a show about the life of Joni Mitchell called “Where light falls” with lyricist Mike Jones and Argentinean guitarist Alejandro Sancho.

Jamie appears regularly with drummer Sebastiaan de Krom’s resident trio at the legendary Troubadour club in London in addition to having performed at major UK jazz clubs and festivals including The Vortex, Ronnie Scotts and Pizza Express. He is a member of the Manchester Leeds rock group Universal Time. He has also attracted positive critical responses. Jazzwise commented on his “restlessly inquisitive guitar” while All About Jazz drew attention to “an uncanny ability to keep the groove, feel and melody of any tune going during his improvisations.” Jamie’s appreciation of the lyric and the art of accompanying a singer is a delight to listen to and to watch.

From drawing on the inspiration of the great jazz guitar vocal duo of Ella Fitzgerald and Joe Pass to distinctive interpretations of more modern singer songwriter material we hope you will have as much fun listening to them as they will have playing for you.
