Live at Zédel has a wide variety of entertainment to complement its great food and cocktails, from comedy, to spoken word, to a fantastic assortment of live music and brilliant theatre. There is something for everyone, whether you’re looking to begin the night or end it with a bang! Take a look at just a few highlights below:
Judy Carmichael “Swing Time”: This Weekend!
“Judy Carmichael is a great entertainer. Her playing is masterly and her linking material show her to be a raconteur in the Ustinov mold.”
A favourite at Live at Zédel, Judy Carmichael plays to sell-out crowds with every visit. Past appearances at St. James Theatre, Ronnie Scott’s and countless U.K. festivals sold out weeks in advance.
Grammy nominated American pianist, vocalist, songwriter, Judy Carmichael, will play her original compositions, along with gems from the American Songbook.
Judy Carmichael appears frequently on radio and TV throughout the world and maintains a busy international touring schedule. She is popular with both jazz and cabaret audiences with her soulful, swinging interpretations of the Great American Songbook, and equally impressive hilarious, improvisational anecdotes.
Judy’s wit and musical knowledge come together on her weekly NPR radio show and podcast Judy Carmichael’s Jazz Inspired, now in its 17th year, where she talks with celebrated creative people about their love for jazz and how it inspires them, everyone from Seth MacFarlane and Chevy Chase to Robert Redford and Billy Joel.
Judy’s frequent musical partner, guitarist Colin Oxley, will join her for the run this limited run that ends Saturday 29th April (tomorrow) and guitarist Sam Dunn will also appear at the last show.
“Judy is a one-woman force for good; more to the point, she’s a player of extraordinary accomplishment who has made stride piano relevant again.”
