We’re very pleased to announce that, after 20 months away, we’re back with three days of live shows at Hull Truck Theatre this July.
Vocalist Kate Peters and her Band get things underway on Thursday 22nd July with The Songs of Ella Fitzgerald, rescheduled from 2020. If you love Ella, then we guarantee you’ll love this show! And saxophonist Snake Davis and his best pal, singer-songwriter Gareth Moulton, are back on Friday 23rd July with a night of mellow jazz, soul, pop and rock. This show has also been rescheduled from 2020.
The first of our two new shows for 2021 is Apphia Campell’s Woke. Against a powerful soundtrack of original music and traditional gospel and blues, Apphia tells the story of two women, 42 years apart, who become involved in the struggle for civil rights. Woke won the coveted Scotsman Fringe First Award for its premiere season, and was highly commended by the judges of the Amnesty Freedom of Expression Award. Apphia’s sold out 2019 appearance at Hull Jazz Festival with Black is the Color of My Voice captivated the audience – if you were lucky enough to be there, don’t miss the chance to see her acclaimed new show on Saturday 23rd July.
We bring our July shows to a close on Saturday 23rd July with a very special show with The Broken Orchestra. Commissioned by Hull Jazz Festival to welcome live music back to the city, Hereafter is a celebration of a brighter tomorrow.
The Broken Orchestra will be performing as a 10-piece band for the first time. And joining them on stage are four of Hull’s most revered vocalists: Lyn Acton, Vicky Foster, Emily Render and Ruthie Scott. An evening of atmospheric song, spoken word and electronica, Hereafter presents views on hope and revival as we move on from the surreal dystopia of lockdown into a new tomorrow.
