About

After their sellout performance last year, we had to ask this band back! Sheffield bass and vocal legend, Nicola Farnon and her brilliant swinging trio, featuring virtuoso Canadian pianist Piero Tucci, and drummer Phil Johnson are joined for this unique concert by US sax legend and Grammy nominee Greg Abate, formerly lead alto player with the Ray Charles Orchestra, and who’s recorded history covers the likes of Kenny Barron, Phil Woods, James Williams, Rufus Reid, Kenny Washington, Alan Barnes, as well a string of gigs at festivals and clubs around the world. Nicola Farnon is a first class bass player and vocalist, effervescent and swinging, always entertaining, and with a wonderful pulsating trio too, in Piero Tucci and Phil Johnson.
