Description

Price from: £130.00

“We had a wonderful afternoon with you last week and the feedback we have received is all very positive.  In fact we have been asked when you are coming again!”

“You have a beautiful voice.  It also made a difference that you were dressed for the occasion.  We had a job to get everyone to go home afterwards.”
Katharine has always been inspired by classic jazz singers like Ella Fitzgerald though to more soulful voices like Etta James and Aretha Franklin.
Katharine puts her own unique spin on a beautiful set list filled with jazz standards as sung by Ella Fitzgerald and Frank Sinatra, to name but two!  
Her easy-listening style and timeless repertoire adds a touch of class to afternoon tea or evening restaurant entertainment.  Her vintage style will also set a visual effect for any venue.
