A Tribute to Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong Featuring Jo Harrop, Andy Davies and Alex Hutton @ Bishops Court Farm
Sunday 30th April 2023
Hampstead Jazz Club proudly presents the hotly anticipated second season of The Snug Sessions at Bishop’s Court Farm, a series of nine very special shows featuring a line-up of some of the brightest stars in contemporary jazz and soul.
The venue for this event is:
Bishop’s Court Farm, 91 High Street, Dorchester-on-Thames, OX10 7HP
“A very fine jazz singer. When she sings, she moves me.” Iggy Pop – BBC 6 Music
Having received unanimous critical acclaim for her last three albums, Jo Harrop recently sold out two shows at Ronnie Scott’s and a string of dates in New York’s most prestigious jazz clubs. Blessed with a chocolate and cream voice that is delicately poised between beguiling sensuality and exquisite fragility, her mellifluous music could melt the hardest of hearts.
For this very special one-off performance, she will be joined by trumpeter Andy Davies and pianist Alex Hutton to celebrate the music of Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong. Between 1956 – 1959, they recorded three timeless albums (Ella and Louis, Ella and Louis Again and Porgy and Bess). Although Fitzgerald and Satchmo’s singing styles could not have been more different, together they enjoyed a symbiotic musical connection which still sounds utterly irresistible after all these years.

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.
