Tuesday 7th May


Elaine Delmar: Vocals
Jim Mullen: Guitar
Barry Green: Piano
Bobby Worth: Drums
Simon Thorpe: Bass

Elaine Delmar is widely recognised as a “Grand Dame’ among British female jazz singers. She was raised in a strong musical environment. Her father was the renowned trumpeter Leslie ‘Jiver’ Hutchinson, a leading influence in the jazz and dance band movement in Britain from the 1930s onwards. After initially learning classical piano, she followed a natural progression towards singing and became a vocalist in her father’s own band at sixteen.
Her stellar recording career has spanned some 60 years. She’s equally at home in the concert hall – she appeared with Andy Williams at the Free Trade Hall in Manchester and Michel Legrand and the LSO at the Royal Albert Hall – and in smaller venues. She makes regular and very popular appearances at Ronnie Scott’s.
Elaine has also had a successful career as an actress on the London stage and on Broadway, receiving critical acclaim for her role in Map Of The World at the National Theatre.
For this event, she’ll be supported by guitar legend Jim Mullen, a major figure on the UK scene in his own right.

Tuesday 4th June


Liane Carrol: Piano and Vocals
Roger Carey: Bass
Russell Field: Drums

Liane has been a pillar of the British jazz scene for over 35 years. While we like to think of her as one of Hastings own, she also has a huge national and international reputation.

She has collaborated with such diverse artists as Paul McCartney, Gerry Rafferty, Long John Baldry, Ian Shaw, Claire Martin and drum and bass outfit London Elektricity, with whom she appeared at Glastonbury in 2017.

As a recording artists Liane has gained much critical acclaim. Her five most recent albums have all earned a four-star review in the Guardian. ‘Seaside’, her homage to her life by the coast, won the coveted British Jazz Award for Best New CD in 2015.For this session she’ll be joined by the two regular members of her trio, both very well known to the local jazz audience: husband Roger Carey on bass and Russell Field on drums.
