Ian Shaw and Guy Barker - City to City

Fri 8 July 2022

UK Jazz stars in a brand new show telling tales of travel.

From the internationally celebrated musical pairing of multi-award-winning singer, pianist and broadcaster, Ian Shaw, and one of the world’s leading trumpeters, arrangers and in-demand conductors – Guy Barker. Between them, they’ve collaborated with the likes of Quincy Jones, Sting, Kurt Elling, Dee Dee Bridgewater, Abdullah Ibrahim, Cleo Laine and John Dankworth.
In this exciting new show, the charismatic duo of Barker and Shaw – through newly arranged, stunning songs and anecdotes – explore the buzz, thrill and stories of The City. From a canon of a century of show songs, cinema and radio, this onstage adventure is not to be missed.
