British soul, jazz and R&B singer Sarah Jane Morris, Tony Rémy and Tim Cansfield interpret singer and songwriter John Martyn's canon of music live at Chapel Arts, to pay homage to a musical maverick who influenced a generation of his peers, friends and fans alike.
This touching tribute shines a light on the sublime genius of John Martyn, a restless, often self-destructive artist whose unique voice and music are both breathtakingly bold and achingly tender in their beauty.
Sarah Jane Morris
Sarah Jane Morris straddles rock, blues, jazz and soul with a goosebump-raising four octave range that rumbles from the heels of her size 8 shoes to the tips of her flame-red mane. With The Communards, Morris topped the UK charts in 1986 with ‘Don’t Leave Me This Way’, and has since gained a devoted audience for her live shows. 'A voice that can excite shivers of passion and delight... Soaring, swooping, sensual and sophisticated, this voice is more than a style, it's a force of nature... Torch song, soul standard or smoky blues, the message remains constant: human passion with a dazzling voice' (Neil Spencer, The Observer).
