Jacqui and all that jazz

Jacqui Dankworth is a performer with an unrivalled pedigree. The daughter of jazz royalty – Johnny Dankworth and Cleo Laine – she is a singer who is always pushing the boundaries.

Jacqui began her professional life as an actor before succumbing to constant requests for concert performances following her appearance in Sondheim’s Into the Woods. Now recognised as one of the country’s finest vocalists, her musical influences include folk, soul and blues and she has appeared with groups as diverse as the Brodsky Quartet and the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra.

The Sunday Times described Jacqui as ‘one of our finest singers, regardless of category’ and The Times described her voice as ‘multi-faceted’ and ‘incomparable’. See for yourself on Tuesday, March 17 when she appears in concert at the Lowther Pavilion. The venue is transforming into a jazz club for the night, with the choice of cabaret seating at tables or the more traditional tiers.

Cabaret table seats are £20, tiered seating £15. For tickets, visit the Lowther Pavilion website.
