    Mon. 25 October 2010 | 8 PM

    Add to calendar

    After a hugely successful run at the Edinburgh Fringe and a sellout tour including the legendary Ronnie Scott’s Bar, God Bless The Child returns for a second national tour.

    Set in a small nightclub this mesmerizing performance takes the audience on an intimate and personal journey, from a misspent youth in Baltimore through to the lavish jazz joints of 1930s Harlem.

    With Katrina Beckford as Billie Holiday and supported by jazz pianist Mike Conliffe, this moving insight into one of America’s greatest singers features a wide and varied selection of Lady Day’s greatest songs and darkest secrets.

    A tour de force performance, beautifully accompanied throughout by pianist Mike Conliffe…

    Strange Fruit, tore a hole through the audience… an excellent piece…
