Ian Shaw & Guy Barker - Songs from the Movies
SUNDAY 29TH JUNE 2014
*subject to licence
Singer Ian Shaw and trumpeter Guy Barker perform a programme of tunes and songs selected from movies they both know and love. Peppered with anecdotes and experiences (they’ve both appeared in movies, Guy’s father was a stunt man and they are both great tellers of tales) Ian’s vocal skills and Guy’s trumpet virtuosity will blend into a jazz entertainment second to none.
From the Hoagy Carmichael years through 'film noir' and sixties thrill to Randy Newman's Toy Story, this hugely entertaining duo will transport you to Hollywood, swinging London and back again.
“Best Jazz Vocalist” at the BBC Jazz Awards in 2007 and 2004, Ian Shaw has amassed a number of highly acclaimed albums and is a popular performer both in the UK and the US. An incredibly colourful character, he has been cited, along with Mark Murphy and Kurt Elling, as one of the world's finest male jazz vocalists.
Guy Barker is a Mercury Award-winning trumpeter, composer and broadcaster. He has performed with many major musicians and groups including and leads the Guy Barker Orchestra, last year collaborating with Paloma Faith.
