“Ageless, evergreen singing…as beautiful and talented as ever.” Michael Parkinson

 ‘Her style is a mixture of Broadway musical punch and jazz-inflected subtlety.’ John Fordham – The Guardian

Kicking off our Autumn programme of Snug Sessions shows, we are honoured to welcome the legendary multi award winning songstress, Elaine Delmar, who will be making her much-anticipated debut at Bishop’s Court Farm.

In an illustrious career that stretches back to the late Fifties, Delmar has appeared everywhere from the Royal Albert Hall to Ronnie Scott’s and starred in numerous West End and Broadway musicals.

With a velvety voice that can turn on a dime between lovelorn jazz ballads and blues belters, she has established a peerless reputation as one of the most sophisticated singers ever to emerge from these shores. Having released a string of hit albums that attracted unanimous critical acclaim, she has collaborated with a seemingly endless list of jazz icons including Michel Legrand, Benny Carter, Wynton Marsalis and Stéphane Grappelli.  

Alongside two of the world’s most respected jazz musicians – virtuoso jazz pianist, Jamie Safir, and bassist, Simon Thorpe – Delmar will be diving into the ageless Great American Songbook on a journey that goes from George & Ira Gershwin and Rodgers & Hart through to Bacharach & David, Cole Porter and Irving Berlin.
