Lillian Boutté in Concert
Saturday, November 16, 2013 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm£15
On the music scene for more than 30 years Lillian is a monument to Jazz, Gospel and R&B. She has performed and recorded with a myriad of legendary musicians including Jay McShane, Harry ‘Sweets’ Edison, Doc Cheatham, Dr. John Professor Longhair, Clark Terry and our own Humphrey Lyttleton. She has quite literally travelled the world performing her brand of New Orleans Jazz and R&B.
Named “New Orleans Musical Ambassador” in 1986, she was only the second jazz legend in the city’s history to be accorded this honour – the first being Louis Armstrong. Lillian has been touring almost non-stop for the last 18 years doing concerts, club dates and festivals all over the world and with the help of 17 albums featuring jazz, pop, blues, soul and gospel has striven to convey New Orlean’s unique atmosphere to an international audience. A unique singer who blends all that is best in Jazz, Gospel and R&B in one high energy, enormously entertaining package. The band Lillian will lead on the night also features one of the UK’s finest guitarists, Denny llet.
