Liane Carroll has been a pillar of the British jazz and soul scene for over thirty-five years, so it’s incredibly exciting to have her here in St Endellion.

She entertains with diverse material including jazz greats, much-loved songs by a range of singer-songwriters, and her own material, all delivered in her haunting, slightly husky voice, with “heart stopping emotion and soul bearing power.” (Peter Quinn, Jazzwise).
