18th June 2023 – Father’s Day
‘Our finest jazz singer.’ Clive Davis – The Times
Making her Snug Sessions debut at Bishop’s Court Farm, we are honoured to welcome multi award-winning jazz singer and BBC Radio 2 presenter, Claire Martin.
Having cut her teeth collaborating with a string of seminal musicians including Kenny Barron, Stéphane Grappelli and John Martyn, she has released an array of critically acclaimed albums and established herself as one of the most unmistakable voices in jazz.
Accompanied by pianist Rob Barron, she will be performing reworkings of some of her favourite classics such as I Love Being Here With You, P.S I Love You and The Folks That Live On The Hill. Of course, there will also be a rendition of My Heart Belongs To Daddy to celebrate Father’s Day.
While the prospect of tackling iconic material made famous by legends like Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday and Peggy Lee would be daunting for some, Claire Martin somehow manages to breathe new life into these wonderful Great American Songbook evergreens.

Located just five miles from Didcot and nine miles from Oxford and set on a 300-acre site in the village of Dorchester-on-Thames in the heart of the idyllic Oxfordshire countryside, Bishop’s Court Farm is a magical, family-friendly and fully sustainable home to 70 characterful alpacas alongside a host of horses, goats, pigs and sheep. At the centre of this pastoral paradise is The Snug restaurant, which offers a mouth-watering menu of locally sourced delights. Complimenting the magnificent menu is the equally magnificent musical programme we have in store for The Snug Sessions.
