THE PETO PROM
Friday 7 July
Clare Teal and her Trio in the Casita
As much as she loves fronting her Big Band or her Hollywood Orchestra, award winning singer and Radio 2 presenter Clare Teal still revels in performing in more intimate venues accompanied by piano, bass and drums.
From swing to sublime ballads, Clare’s concerts with her Trio are renowned across the country for their fabulous arrangements interspersed with Clare’s warm and witty storytelling guaranteeing the audience something personal and very special. The rich, jazz infused repertoire explores timeless classics penned by the legendary musical storytellers of the last 100 years, and celebrates giants of the Great American and British Songbooks through to the work of more contemporary writers crafting the standards of today plus Clare’s own original compositions. The eclectic song list, with music from Cole Porter, Billy Strayhorn, Rodgers and Hammerstein, Tim Rice to Sting, and honouring the likes of Ella Fitzgerald, Nina Simone, Nancy Wilson and Peggy Lee, will include a selection of material from her latest album Twelve O’Clock Tales.
As one of the UK’s greatest interpreters of song and much loved performers, Clare and her Trio promise a sparkling night of inspired music and unbridled entertainment, performed by the very best.
Leeds City Stompers in the Cloister
Leeds City Stompers are vintage styled trio that play blues, jazz, ragtime and swing as it was played in the 1920s, 30s & 40s. The band uses 1930s drumkits, vintage resonator guitars and double basses combined with three voices to make a big sound that has graced stages at major festivals, jazz clubs and vintage events in the UK and beyond. This has included headline sets at The Great British Rhythm and Blues Festival and Beauvais Blues Festival near Paris.
The band currently clocks up 100+ gigs a year along and with a promo tour after its first album release in 2016 the band is very much in demand. Artists that inspire the band include; Louis Armstrong, Duke Ellington, Bessie Smith, Louis Prima, Billie Holliday, Gene Kruppa, Robert Johnson, Blind Boy Fuller and Hank Williams. We’re looking forward to playing this prestigious festival and can’t wait to play.
