Carol Grimes

Critics' choice
A spirited jazz and blues singer, Grimes's rough-edged delivery on ballads is a delight, while she can kick-in on the faster numbers to exciting effect. A stalwart from her days as a key figure on the proggy Canterbury '60s scene alongside the likes of Cream and the Yardbirds – she's now four decades into her career and still going strong. Tonight she lines up with Dorian Ford, Winston Clifford, Annie Whitehead and Neville Malcolm.
