A truly inspirational and daring performer (to those she hasn't offended at any rate), Sinead's heartfelt and passionate material since the 80s has spanned indie, folk and pop. Twenty years after she first began transforming the pop cultural landscape with the release of her debut solo album, "The Lion and The Cobra," she continues to delight and surprise, challenge and inspire with the sound of her voice and the power of her music.
Sinead O'Connor tour dates
This young jazz-influenced pianist and vocalist from the West Country is a favourite of Radio 2 listeners and record company accountants. He has been likened, apparently, to Harry Connick Jnr and has even been described as 'Sinatra in sneakers'. True fans of Ol' Blue Eyes will no doubt have their own views...
Jamie Cullum tour dates
Elaine Paige swept to fame when she created her award winning performance as Eva Peron in Evita. Shortly afterwards she created the roles of Grizabella in the original production of Cats - the classic song Memory becoming her signature – and Florence in Chess (which featured her record breaking number one hit I Know Him So Well with Barbara Dickson).
As “The First Lady of Musical Theatre” Elaine Paige has made a major contribution to the modern musical. Olivier Winner and five-time nominee, she has starred in numerous productions in the West End and on Broadway. Elaine has also performed in concert worldwide from The White House to The Great Hall of the People in Beijing, from the Bolshoi to Sydney Opera House.
Elaine Paige tour dates
Energetic popsters from London whose proficient songs and live sets employ beautiful harmonies and elements of folk and bluegrass to good effect. Their hit song '5 Years' Time' is sufficient to reel in any potential fan, as their packed-out gigs would suggest.
Noah & The Whale tour dates
Winner of numerous awards, voted Jazz Vocalist of the Year three times running.
This talented jazz vocalist and songwriter, whose influences range from Ella Fitzgerald to Cole Porter and Noel Coward, is '...one of the best vocal talents to emerge from the UK in a long, long while' (Michael Parkinson).
Clare won British Jazz Singer of the year in both 2005 and 2007, and BBC Jazz Singer Of The Year 2006.
Clare Teal tour dates
The long-standing frontman of Simply Red, one of the biggest-selling bands of the '90s, has built a successful solo career since the band split following their farewell tour back in 2010. He released his first solo album in 2008, and also toured with Faces as the guest vocalist. Renowned for his great interpretations of others' songs, having had global hits with Money's Too Tight To Mention, If You Don't Know Me By Now and You Make Me Feel Brand New, Mick's ballad-driven bluesy, soulful soft rock has proved a perennial favourite with the public.
Mick Hucknall tour dates
