EFG London Jazz Festival: 100 Years Of British Song With Ian Shaw

One pianist, a handful of singers and a century of songs

How to you fit 100 years of British song into two hours? With difficulty, but Ian Shaw makes a mighty fine stab at it, covering such themes as war, space, hope, exile and love. The award-winning musician and comedian can coax wondrous sounds from the piano, but he's not alone in his ambitious quest. As Shaw delves into the past, he's joined by an army of jazz, soul and folk singers who bring his time capsule pieces to life. Travel from the First World War to the present day as Ian Shaw orchestrates a whistle-stop tour of British music. Please arrive on time as latecomers may not be admitted. No under 5s.
