Join internationally renowned vocalist and BBC Radio presenter, Claire Martin OBE, and legendary saxophonist and singer, Ray Gelato, for their new show together: 'A Swingin’ Affair'.
Celebrating the release of their album ‘We’ve Got a World That Swings’ – described by The Observer as “Jazz Artistry” - these much celebrated and respected Artists take to the stage to explore Great American Songbook.
Alongside a world-class trio of musicians, Claire and Ray revisit classics such as 'Let's Call the Whole Thing Off', ‘They Can’t Take That Away from Me’, 'They all Laughed' and 'Can’t We Be Friends’.
If you like your music sassy, sharp and swinging - this is the show for you. A swingin’ affair indeed!
