Back to All Events

Concert // These foolish things // Songs of the jazz age

After their first concert together at Dartington in 2017, Sarah Gabriel (vocalist), Steve Dummer (clarinet) and Stephen de Pledge (piano) continue their exploration of jazz songs at Dartington Festival, written at a time when politics and world events were anything but frivolous or ‘foolish’. George Gershwin, Harold Arlen, Hoagy Carmichael and lyricist Dorothy Field sit alongside European counterparts: Noel Coward, Kurt Weill, and the doyennes of Parisian cabaret, Marguerite Monnot and Edith Piaf.
