Thursday 17th November 2022
Tickets: £20.00 Seat at a shared Table for 4 /£15.00 Seat – No Table
Please NOTE due to unforeseen circumstances, Jamie McCredie is unavailable for this show. Paul Edis will accompany Jo Harrop on Piano still performing the same material planned for the evening.
Jo Harrop & Paul Edis will perform songs from the critically acclaimed, 2020 released duets album, ‘Weathering The Storm’ played in this most intimate setting.
Jo Harrop recently received a raft of rapturous reviews for “Weathering The Storm”, Jo Harrop’s debut album with guitarist, Jamie McCredie. The Guardian dubbed it ‘a little gem of an album: simple, modest and perfect,’ whilst BBC 6 Music’s Iggy Pop fell in love with her voice, calling her “a very fine jazz singer.”
Released during lock-down, effortlessly blurring the lines between jazz and folk, “Weathering The Storm” is an achingly beautiful and intimate album that is so shot through with pathos and pain, it could melt the hardest of hearts.
Mixing up a potent blend of Great American Songbook evergreens alongside a handful of indelible classics by Tom Waits, Randy Newman and David Gates, they somehow manage to shine new light on these old songs about life, love and loss.
Harrop’s velvety voice shimmers, weighing each and every word with precision, silently contemplating exactly how much she wants to reveal and how much she wants to keep hidden in the shadows of these deep-blue soliloquies. At times, she sounds as if she is living inside the songs, with each lyric a page from her diary.
Recorded live in one or two takes, “Weathering The Storm” has an ageless, ineffably moving quality that is pure and true and as rare as hen’s teeth.
Vocals – Jo Harrop
Piano – Paul Edis
