Jacqui Dankworth has been named as one of the headlining artists to play at the 2009 Southport International Jazz Festival. The festival that kicks of on Friday 29 and runs until Sunday 31 May, grows in statue and reputation each year and this year is no exception.
Given her musical pedigree, its no surprise that Jacqui Dankworth is considered to be one of our finest singers regardless of category.
Over the last few years, Jacqui has made an enormous impression worldwide with her diverse singing and songwriting skills: from touring with the Brodsky Quartet to wowing discerning audiences at places like Ronnie Scotts in London or The Jazz Bakery in Los Angeles.
Her albums As The Sun Shines Down on Me and Detour Ahead - have received critical acclaim and Spring 2009 will see the release of her eagerly awaited third solo album.
Playing with Jacqui in her acclaimed band of internationally renowned musicians are: Chris Allard guitars, Malcolm Edmonstone piano, keyboards, and musical director, Alec Dankworth bass, Roy Dodds drums.
There are very few singers that can sound so good on record and even better when you see them live on stage. Jacqui Dankworth is one of the few who sounds fantastic all the time!
Sir Michael Parkinson
Jacqui Dankworth is an eclectic, assured singer with a technique to die for.
