Award-winning singer and pianist Joanna Eden will put her own jazz influences on the songs of Stephen Sondheim at Saffron Walden's Fairycroft House on Saturday, July 13.
This show, celebrating the Godfather of modern musical theatre, was launched to acclaim at last year's London Jazz Festival.
Joanna has long been a fan of the American composer and lyricist who is known for more than a half-century of contributions to musical theatre, including Send in the Clowns.
Joanna's own talent has been described by Dame Cleo Laine as "Bloody marvellous", by Time Out as "The UK's answer to Diana Krall" and Sir Michael Parkinson told his Radio 2 listeners to "Seek her out."
