  • £12.50

After performing to sold-out auditoriums with Rufus Wainwright this year – and seducing Manchester audiences at the Nick Drake: Way to Blue concert in 2010 – the Paris-based singer-songwriter is back with her own band and a hatful of love songs.

“… one of the greatest living singers at the moment – I’m very brave to have her in my show because she’s formidable.” Rufus Wainwright

‘Warren’s voice is an extraordinary instrument… It vividly recalls Nina Simone in its depth and smokiness, as well as John Martyn and (Jeff ) Buckley in terms of virtuosic variety.’ The Guardian

Krystle honed her style (a gorgeous jazz-blues-folk-soul mix) – on the streets of Kansas City and New York before cutting loose for the Continent. Since then, an acclaimed appearance on Later with Jools, live dates with Joan As Policewoman and plaudits from Rufus Wainwright and k.d. lang, have made garnered her major attention. Join us at Band on the Wall for an intimate evening in the company of this tremendous talent.

‘Warren’s talents are extraordinary. She has an octave-hopping voice that glides between languid and urgent, and music that hovers between funk, folk and jazz, between Jeff Buckley and Nina Simone. She’s the real deal’ Observer

‘A strikingly original sound.’ The Times

This unreserved seating and limited standing event will begin at 8pm but our Picturehouse Cafe Bar is open from 5.30pm for delicious food and drinks.
