“Acclaimed singer, storyteller and leading vocalist with the riotous Hi-life ensemble Yaaba Funk, Helen McDonald draws from the American Songbook to sing jazz standards and classic torch songs that inspire memories and nostalgia which our elders can access by phone at any time. Helen is making her number available to those at home or in care homes who yearn for a rendition of the rugged sensuality of Lady Day’s God Bless the Child or the vocal acrobatics of Ella Fitzgerald’s epic scat strewn How High the Moon, taking requests and singing along with participants. Promoted in partnership with veteran senior citizen entertainers Duckie’s Posh Club the Telephone Jazz Singalong offers a joyous interlude from the daily void that social distancing can bring.”
Call 01473 561 027 to access the telephone singalong Mondays to Thursdays between 2pm – 5pm til 11th September 2020.
