Amber Kuti sings… Ella Fitzgerald

September 13 @ 19:30

Amber Kuti is... Ella Fitzgerald
** THIS EVENT HAS PRIORITY TICKET ACCESS FOR FRIENDS OF LUDLOW ASSEMBLY ROOMS UNTIL 22 APRIL **
Kindly sponsored by Dinham Weir House and Shropshire Distillery!
Shropshire Distillery will be providing a gin based cocktail for the welcome drink.
Ella Fitzgerald’s impact as a jazz singer is virtually unrivalled. Nicknamed ‘The First Lady of Song’ her voice has become an emblem of jazz as important as the trumpet of Louis Armstrong or the saxophone of John Coltrane. ‘Amber Sings Ella’ is an evening celebrating Ella’s astonishing career.
Artist Amber Kuti has had a vast career singing Jazz and Soul, performing around the world in countries such as India, Nepal, Brazil, US and on home soil in the UK. Some of her most notable work includes being invited as a guest artist for International Jazz Day in Goa, India, singing on the soundtrack for Marvel’s Black Panther and Wakanda Forever at Abbey Road Studios in 2018 and 2023 and most recently performing at the Kings Coronation Concert behind artists such as Katy Perry, Lionel Richie, and Andrea Bocelli. She has also performed in venues such as the Liverpool Philharmonic, Royal Albert Hall, London Palladium to name but a few.
Become immersed with Amber and her sextet as they perform Ella classics including “All of Me” and “Dream A Little Dream”, as well as lesser known greats like “Someone To Watch Over Me” and “Just One of Those Things”.
