Ian Shaw

Greek Street Friday, 8:00pm Jazz at the Palacebutton--dates-and-timesDates & Times

The multi-award winning Ian Shaw and his 8-piece band opens our long weekend of jazz.

They are performing songs from Greek Street Friday (Silent Wish Records), which reflect Ian's lifelong love of people and places, and echo the highs and melancholy poetry of city living.

Co-written and produced by Jamie Safir (Will Young, Mica Paris, Birdy, Kylie Minogue), there's a lyrical fearlessness that echoes Bowie, Bernie Taupin, Billy Joel, Tom Waits and Joni Mitchell. The music is fresh, bluesy and funky.

“An impassioned and versatile artist.”
