Jazz and blues greats Jacqui Dankworth (vocals) & Charlie Wood (piano)

Jacqui Dankworth & Charlie Wood performed at Bradfield in 2017, and we are thrilled at their return in 2019. Jacqui is one of the most highly regarded vocalists in the UK. Her concert appearances and her stylistically diverse recordings showcase her virtuosic, seemingly effortless mastery of a wide spectrum of genres. Known primarily as a jazz singer, Jacqui’s unique musical palette also draws on folk, soul, classical, blues, and numerous other influences. Jacqui’s most recent CD, “Live To Love”, has garnered rave reviews and features many of her own original compositions.

Charlie Wood is a singer/songwriter and keyboardist whose eclectic musical style incorporates elements of jazz, blues, traditional r&b and popular music. Born and raised in Memphis, TN, Wood’s early musical development was steeped in the blues and R&B music of his hometown. At seventeen, he headed down to New Orleans, spending several years soaking up the exotic piano traditions and lush lifestyle of the Big Easy. Charlie Wood’s seventh studio album “Tomorrow Night” was recently released on Perdido Records. Featuring 12 tracks – some self-penned, others made famous by BB King, Otis Redding, Bobby “Blue” Bland, Al Green – the album is a true return to form from this acclaimed singer/keyboardist, blending a sound steeped in traditional R&B and Blues, leavened with some Jazz influences.
