“If, like me, you’ve been hoping that Stacey Kent would one day make another album of classic American songs, here it is at last… Deceptively simple, meticulously presented, each of the 12 tracks is a little gem. Kent’s soft, light voice is as persuasive as ever, and the playing is, of course, immaculate.” ★★★★★ ~ The Guardian
Internationally acclaimed, Grammy-nominated vocalist Stacey Kent returns to the UK for a limited number of dates this summer, touring in support of ‘Tenderly’, her latest album.
Tenderly sees Stacey return to familiar ground with her first album of standards and jazz-classics since the release of 2003 breakthrough ‘The Boy Next Door’. The intervening years have seen Stacey expand her repertoire to include originals specially written for her by the likes of Man Booker Prize winning novelist Kazuo Ishiguro, and British saxophonist Jim Tomlinson.
Stacey’s international touring schedule keeps her on the road for most of the year, so her appearance at Ropetackle will be rare opportunity to see this stunning vocalist live in concert.
