Never miss another 'Ian Shaw' show
Live Lounge Series - Dinner & Live Music in the intimate Cafe Guildhall: Ian Shaw
“Best Jazz Vocalist” at the BBC Jazz Awards in 2007 and 2004, Ian Shaw has already amassed a number of highly acclaimed albums and is a popular performer both in the UK and the US. He has been cited, along with Mark Murphy and Kurt Elling, as one of the world's finest male jazz vocalists.
The award-winning singer-pianist and cheeky raconteur’s show overflows with tales of grumpy midlife woe, salacious witty memoir, heart stopping songs and rude sing-alongs. Shaw has worked with everyone in music and comedy from Jools Holland, Jo Brand, Rory Bremner, Jamie Cullum, Quincy Jones, and Charlotte Church.
Ian's solo one-man show, A Bit of Mouthful, a delicious confectionery of witty songs, hilarious stories and heartfelt balladry goes on road including a full run at the prestigious Edinburgh Festival in August.
Ian Shaw's career in performance began unusually for a jazz musician on the Alternative Cabaret Circuit, alongside such performers as Julian Clary, Rory Bremner and Jo Brand.
Shaw was spotted by Dave Illic, jazz critic for City Limits and was described as 'the voice of the decade'. He has since gone on to win Best Jazz Vocalist at the BBC Jazz Awards in 2004 and 2007, and has amassed a number of highly acclaimed albums.
A popular performer both in the UK and the US, Ian Shaw is an incredibly colourful character and has been cited, along with Mark Murphy and Kurt Elling, as one of the world's finest male jazz vocalists.
'A high-class performance of timelessly high class songs' (The Guardian).
