Ladbroke Hall presents Ian Shaw with the songs of David Bowie and Joni Mitchell. Multi-award-winning singer, Ian Shaw, makes his debut at Ladbroke Hall with one of his favourite shows, fusing the words and music of two of popular music's genius giants, Joni Mitchell and the much-missed David Bowie. Traversing the mammoth back catalogue of these legendary and influential artists, this solo show draws on stories from the early seventies and our own ideals of love, hope and the endless presence of the darker truths of recent times.
Shaw recorded a critically highly praised album of Joni Mitchell (‘Drawn To All Things’, Linn Records) and has a personal connection to both, which is the core of this exciting show. This promises to be a highly charged evening of tears, laughter and simply great songwriting.
Collaborators over the years have been many and include Quincy Jones, Abdullah Ibrahim, Guy Barker, Kenny Wheeler, John Taylor, Iain Ballamy, Mornington Lockett, Barb Jungr, Cleo Laine, John Dankworth, Cedar Walton, Joe Lovano and Joe Beck.
"Jazz singer Ian Shaw is almost too talented for his own good...a brilliant vocal chameleon" The Telegraph
"Great jazz singers, like great comedians, are masters of timing. That Ian Shaw is a virtuoso of both disciplines, balancing stand-up and concert gigs, speaks to the breadth of his genius and to the singularity of his style as a singer" Jazz Times (USA)
