WORLD MUSIC


Turin Brakes


Having redefined the acoustic pop genre with their debut album, The Optimist LP, which was short-listed for the Mercury Music Prize in 2001, Olly Knights and Gale Paridjanian went on to release a string of superlative collections which saw them gradually expand on their original sound and vision. By the time of their album Dark On Fire, the acoustic troubadours had turned into a fully-fledged, plugged-in, soft-rock band.

2. Geno Washington 3. Stacey Kent


Immortalised in Dexy’s Midnight Runners’ 1980 hit Geno, this human dynamo has been performing his soul roadshow since the early 1960s when he was a US airman based in East Anglia. An anarchic, beat-driven amalgam of blues and hardcore R&B, tonight he’s backed by a six-piece band. His style is unique, his attitude irreverent. As he announces at regular intervals: ‘It’s my shit, and I’ll shake it where I want it.’ That’s a first for the Festival!

DIRECTOR’S CHOICE Stacey Kent


One of the world’s foremost jazz singers with best- selling albums, international awards, chart hits, a film role and a host of sell-out concerts all over the world, Stacey Kent is a favourite of Clint Eastwood, Michael Parkinson and David Frost. Most tellingly perhaps, she is appreciated by the writers of the songs she sings.


Three-time Oscar-winning songwriter, Jay Livingston, wrote of her, ‘Stacey Kent is a revelation. There is nobody singing today who can compare with her. She has the style of the greats, like Billie Holiday and Ella Fitzgerald. And she sings the words like Nat Cole – clean, clear and almost conversational with


perfect phrasing. And that’s as good as it gets.’
