Liane Carroll

  • Critics choice

It’s always a joy to watch charismatic vocalist/pianist Liane Carroll, one of the finest jazz singers this country has ever produced. Here she performs her regular ‘A Christmas Carroll’ show – expect plenty of festive cheer alongside Carroll’s inimitable, ragged-edged, gospel-inflected style and infectious personality.

  2. Fri Dec 26 - Sat Dec 27

  • Critics choice

Four London longhairs draw on krautrock, classic British psychedelia and glam rock to thrash through their loosely-structured, wah-heavy tunes.
