Strange Fruit: A Tribute to Billie Holiday

Friday 25th September

Join us as we celebrate the 100th anniversary of Billie Holiday. We have put together a fabulous show featuring the best jazz, blues, and contemporary voices in the East Midlands keeping the voice, songs and lyrics sung by Billie Holiday alive. Under the musical direction of Neil Hunter we have a fabulous line up of singers and musicians such as Carol Leeming, renowned as a hugely versatile artist with a very powerful and distinct vocal style; innately skilled, innovative performer of song, spoken word, jazz vocalese and scat, Mellow Baku; established jazz vocalist Dee Joseph; and emerging talents Lydia Unsudimi and Ili Sanchea, alongside musical accompaniment from saxophonist Marcus Joseph, double bass player Mark Trounson and drummer Paul Whistler.

This year we are asking you to come and celebrate the launch of BHM in style, suggesting a dress code inspired by the 40s and 50s, where you can step back in time and dress up for an evening out
