"Best current British blues singer I know." – The words of BBC 6 Music's Tom Robinson, who has long given a nod of approval to the work of this singer-songwriter.

Melissa James is, however, much more than a blues singer. She is a poetical songsmith with a voice that permeates the fibres of many who hear it. She is inspired by the work of Nina Simone, Joni Mitchell, Eric Bibb, and Lizz Wright - a singer to whom she has been likened. Melissa's music is rootsy, gospel-folk with a large helping of soul.

This concert brings an array of performances, encouraging the connection of our humanity in an urgent time of healing.


Flautist Rowland Sutherland enjoys an international career, playing with an array of artists whose music spans jazz, classical, and pop. He has also guested with non-Western groups and performed with Nitin Sawhney, Manu Dibango, Courtney Pine, and recorded with Incognito, George Benson, Joss Stone, Omar, and countless others.
