David McAlmont

Hideaway, London


This event has been and gone.

Inspired by the legendary 1956 concert at which Bille's music was accompanied by extracts from her autobiography 'Lady Sings The Blues', David McAlmont gives his unique interpretations of the Lady Day catalogue at Hideaway Jazz Club, while quoting from her extraordinary life story, with a band led by pianist / MD Alex Webb (Cafe Society, Fever, Portrait of Cannonball).

'David McAlmont is one of British Pop's most precious hidden treasures. His voice is a sublime and miraculous thing' - The Independent

The show includes many of the most well-known Holiday songs, ranging from the optimism of her 1930s work (What A Little Moonlight Can Do, Fine and Mellow) through to her 1940s Torch songs (My Man, I Cover The Waterfront) to her self-penned classics 'Don't Explain' and 'Lady Sings The Blues' - and many more.
