Swing into spring with June James
With sounds from the golden era of music a borders songstress will grace the stage of the Maltings studio next week.
June James will be singing her audience into spring with her renditions of scitillating swing.
Accompanied by musicians producing a big band sound, June will sing compositions from Gershwin to Bacharach with cabaret-style seating in a night club atmosphere with licensed bar.
Tribute is paid to the Golden era of song along with some self-penned numbers.
June, based in the Borders, concentrates mainly on entertaining home audiences and is one of the few singers who perform this wonderful music .
June performs songs from the American songbook and includes popular songs with wide appeal, which lend themselves to a swing or bluesy treatment. Her personality shines through interpretation of a lyric on smooth ballads, upbeat swing numbers and her own compositions.
Local musicians make up the quintet and include Kate Philp, a local Berwick artist who plays saxophone, Harris Playfair, a skilled keyboard player, Frank Hockney, a talented and experienced drummer, and Mark Mawby, very efficient on bass guitar.
The event takes place on Thursday, March 11, in the Henry Travers Studio.
