The festival kicks off with a jaw-dropping double-headline show featuring jazz vocal sensation Zara McFarlane and legendary singer Omar. Blurring the lines between jazz, reggae, nu-soul and soul, we'll be sharing in a memorable evening with two of the UK's finest voices.
Omar Lye-Fook is without doubt one of the greatest soul music talents the United Kingdom has produced in the last 40 years. Omar possesses a truly original and unique voice, alongside enviable musicianship and song writing talent.
Multi-award-winning singer-songwriter Zara McFarlane, is the UK’s Black British foremost jazz vocalist. Eloquent and provocative, she won a MOBO back in 2014 and since then has twice won Jazz FM's Vocalist of the Year.
