Two and a half years ago singer/pianist Sarah McKenzie took part in the Umbria Jazz Festival competition and as a result was awarded – as one of a very few – a full scholarship at iconic Berklee College of Music. 18 months later she graduated with a Diploma in Jazz Performance and was immediately snapped up by the boss of Universal Publishing France, Jean-Philippe Allard, to record for Universal’s famous Impulse! label.

Zara McFarlane
Fri-17-Jul (7:30pm):
Zara McFarlane
Show Time 9pm / Doors Open 7:30pm

Zara McFarlane’s debut album, 2011’s 'Until Tomorrow', was garlanded with rave reviews and a MOBO award nomination, and heralded a major new talent in the world of British jazz. The follow-up, also recorded for Gilles Peterson’s Brownswood Recordings label, is a more ambitious collection that draws from many more influences: from the deep spiritual jazz of Pharoah Sanders to dub and reggae. When not working on her own material, Zara has performed as a featured vocalist in Gary Crosby’s Jazz Jamaica, and performed with esteemed British jazzers such as Orphy Robinson, Denys Baptiste and Soweto Kinch. She’s fronted Italian DJ Nicola Conte’s big band, performed at a Nina Simone tribute concert in Amsterdam and played support for South African trumpeter Hugh Masekela and American singer Gregory Porter.
