The Great American Songbook

Award-winning jazz singer Nishla Smith brings her trio and a sparkling string quartet to Buxton for an evening celebrating the best jazz standards of the Golden Age of Song. Joined by some of the UK’s foremost musicians, Nishla will present a selection of the 20th century’s best-loved songs, from Bewitched to Paper Moon.

Nishla is an artist driven by a desire to tell stories. Her unique musical sensibility drives a prolific array of musical projects. She’s recently worked for Opera North, the London Jazz Festival and Manchester Collective.

‘Smith’s singing is an entrancing beauty… she creates a darkly gorgeous interior sonic world.’  Downbeat USA
