Pat McCarthy is a Jazz guitarist, composer and teacher who has been playing professionally for over 35 years, performing across the world alongside some of the most renowned jazz musicians around including Alan Barnes , Kenny Wheeler, Dennis Rollins, Snake Davis and George Melly.
His current quartet, featuring singer Shannon Reilly, Warren Jolly (bass) and Thom Whitworth (trumpet and guitar), present a warm and melodic repertoire of jazz standards and original songs in a modern vein.
Shannon grew up listening to Etta James, Ella Fitzgerald, Doris Day and Peggy Lee. Although she developed her style listening to these iconic singers, she is very much her own woman and has captivated audiences across the UK.
“These incredibly talented and engaging musicians present a varied programme, with the very best of jazz and swing, ranging from 1930’s classics to the new generation of modern jazz hits. Seamlessly interwoven with effortless delivery and a few anecdotes, this is a perfect way to relax and enjoy an evening of the sweetest sounds, coolest ‘Standards’ and all that jazz.”
