Band on the Wall presents the first ever Manchester concert by the internationally-acclaimed, Grammy-nominated ‘First Daughter of Soul’ Lalah Hathaway.
“Her notes were perfectly placed and rhythmic, like Ella Fitgerald scatting Lemondrop over an Erykah Badu tune. The audience cheered every long high note, and whooped at every tricky phrase.” London Jazz
The daughter of the late great soul singer Donny Hathaway, her incredible voice, described by Rachelle Ferrelle as “rich, melted organic chocolate” has often been rightly compared to that of her father’s – deep, mellow and complex. Yet her music is very much her own and, having worked with everyone from Dizzy Gillespie, Al Jarreau and Chaka Khan to George Benson, Mary J. Blige and Stevie Wonder, she’s built upon on her soul foundations exciting new layers of jazz, R&B and even funk to produce stunning songs that, alongside her sensational voice, have garnered her a world-wide following. A once-in-a-lifetime chance to see this golden voice live and up close. Advance booking strongly recommended.
Special guest sets tonight from JP Cooper and Sarah Fonteyne.
This show starts at 8pm but our Picturehouse cafe bar opens earlier for home made food and drinks.
