16 Nov: A Bit Of A Mouthful – An Evening with Ian Shaw
Ian Shaw, BBC Award winner for Best Male Jazz Vocalist on numerous occasions, started out as a stand–up comedian.

Throughout 2011, Ian was on tour with Rory Bremner, singing and honing material for his new one-man show A Bit Of A Mouthful.
This evening will highlight all of Ian’s performing skills, from poignant or witty takes on popular songs, to daring and often very personal tales of a jazz singer’s life on the road.
Expect funny, new original ditties and hilarious audience participation alongside heartfelt ballads from his critically acclaimed solo album Somewhere Towards Love.
