Liz Fletcher Quintet (jazz)

Vocalist Liz Fletcher is being joined by saxophonist Andy Panayi for her gig at the Under Ground Theatre in December. You might remember his visit to the same venue with his own quartet in 2012? She also recorded with more recent visitor Matt Wates for her 1997 album Mellow Mania.

Liz is from a family of singers and includes artists such as Peggy Lee, Julie London and Ella Fitzgerald among her influences. She has performed extensively in the UK as well as across Europe, the Far East and the USA. Another previous Under Ground jazz musician, Alan Barnes, together with playwright Alan Plater wrote the album Songs For Unsung Heroes and asked Liz to record the work. On her website, Liz says of the project “Never have I learned so much and laughed so much as when working these two extraordinarily talented men. I am forever grateful”.

Under Ground Theatre, 6th Dec, 20.00.
Tickets £12, students and UGT members £11, available online, by calling 0845 680 1926, or in person from the Under Ground Theatre and Eastbourne Tourist Information Centre.
