Clare Teal in concert plus pianist
Jazz Vocalist of the Year 2006 (BBC), Yorkshire lass Clare has a busy international touring schedule but continues to write for and present BBC’s “Big Band Special” and “Friday Night is Music Night”.
Clare has that special talent of being able to blend being a unique singer with an excellent ability to chat to an audience using sharp wit. Clare could be described as a cross between Ella Fitzgerald and Victoria Wood. Clare is also a radio presenter with a regular show namely Big Band Special on radio 2. She is an established song writer and has been compared to Cole Porter. Over the last few years Clare has performed in Jazz Clubs, Festivals, with the BBC Big Band, on television with Parkinson, on RTE's The Late Late Show and ITV's This Morning. Clare has also been voted Jazz singer of the year twice.
In January Clare presented a series on Radio 2 profiling 1930s singer Al Bowlly and in May she played tribute to a collection of the world's greatest female jazz performers called Jazz Divas. If further evidence of her multi-faceted talents were needed, Clare also has a weekly lifestyle column in the Yorkshire Post.
