ABOUT ZOE FRANCIS

Iconic American singer/pianist Blossom Dearie, one of the last supper club performers, was a favourite at Ronnie Scott's club. Her unique vocal style and accompaniment personalized every song she sung. This concert is a homage to her repertoire. After living in Paris and London she returned to her native New York and for 7 years performed at Danny's Skylight Room on West 46th Street where she played her final engagement in 2006.

Performing this afternoon with London-born Zoe Francis (who herself started singing in New York), are award-winning guitarist Jim Mullen, with pianist Barry Green and bassist Mick Hutton
