2021 Parliamentary Jazz Award nominee Brigitte Beraha is one of the leading talents on the UK jazz scene. She has recorded a number of critically acclaimed albums, with the latest under her name, 'Lucid Dreamers', adventuring into the realms of electronic exploration. She is increasingly involved in exciting cross-genre projects, such as the recreation of Basil Kirchin’s music as part of Hull City of Culture 2017 or Raising Hell with Henry Purcell led by Ethan Iverson at Kings Place in 2018, cementing her reputation as a truly versatile artist with a huge range of experience and creative scope. This concert sees Brigitte revisiting her love of the standard jazz repertoire, in an exciting new trio comprised of 'formidably skilled' Barry Green and 'phenomenal' Alan Barnes
