Tony Jacobs Celebrates and Sings
Tony Jacobs Celebrates George Gershwin, Cole Porter and Other Great Songwriters
Tony Jacobs and Jim Barry
Vocalist Tony Jacobs cordially invites you to a magical couple of hours in the company of some of the greatest songwriters of all time.
As well as George Gershwin and Cole Porter, many other songwriters are celebrated including Irving Berlin, Rodgers and Hart, Harry Warren, Stephen Sondheim, Hoagy Carmichael and Johnny Mercer.
Pianist Jim Barry – a superb soloist as well as accompanist - was principal keyboardist with the BBC Radio Band with whom he made countless broadcasts and has accompanied stars as diverse as Vera Lynn, Harry Secombe and Dizzy Gillespie!
Tony Jacobs (vocals) and Jim Barry (piano) are very pleased to have been presenting shows for The Night Out Scheme for more than ten years. Most of the venues they have appeared at - eg Barmouth, Fairbourne, Monmouth, Gwernymynydd, Llanigon have re-booked them three or four times and they have built up quite a following.
Their new show - TONY JACOBS CELEBRATES AND SINGS COLE PORTER, GEORGE GERSHWIN AND OTHER GREAT SONGWRITERS is an amalgam of the very best of their previous musical offerings.
Tony and Jim welcome special guest SUE GREENWAY (sax and clarinet) in this three hander version of their very successful show - THE SWING CABARET TRIO which can be adapted for Swing Into Christmas!
