Championed by chat show king Michael Parkinson, Clare Teal has risen quickly through the jazz ranks in recent years. Parky brought her to the public’s attention in 2002, and by 2003 she had been nominated in the Rising Star category of the BBC Jazz Awards. Teal was also nominated in the Best Vocalist category in both 2003 and 2004.
On stage, Teal mixes classic jazz with pop songs and her own pieces. Throw in an infectious personality and you have a perfect summer evening of music.
