Lindsay Hannon tours the rural venues

Acclaimed jazz musician Lindsay Hannon is playing at four Northern rural venues between 4-7 November- and will be accompanied by some very special guests

As part of the #CREATEtour project, run by Thirsk based arts charity Rural Arts, Lindsay has been working with young people aged 11-18, helping them create their own musical performance which will become her opening act for her performance at The Courthouse.

“Running the #CREATEtour at Tuned In is one of our favourite things that we do here at Rural Arts” said Sophie Backhouse, the projects organiser. “Being able to work with Lindsay, a brilliant professional singer, is an amazing opportunity for them and we are really excited to see what is created!”

According to Bebop Spoken Here, Northumbrian singer Lindsay is “in the top bracket of singers currently working the jazz club circuit.”  Her band, The Lindsay Hannon Plus, have this year released their debut album The Spy which includes a mixture of covers and original songs. The band are rooted in the improvisational traditions of jazz – and are able to moves seamlessly from raucous barrel house blues to thoughtful, spacious ballads and across a wide variety of styles. Her band is
Lindsay Hannon (vocals), John Pope (bass), James Harrison (piano), Tom Chapman (drums)
