John Etheridge & Vimala Rowe

There’s only one gig in December at the Cambridge Modern Jazz Club @ The Hidden Rooms, but as always it’s our very special Christmas Cracker. This year Santa is bringing us the amazing gift of not only generously gifted guitar virtuoso John Etheridge but also sensational rising-star singer Vimala Rowe with a show titled ‘Out of the Sky’.  A dream pairing to dazzle in even the deepest dark December.

Immensely soulful, powerful performance – London Jazz News 

Legendary guitarist John Etheridge has had substantial relationships during his 45 year career with some of the most famous names of 20th century music including Stephane Grappelli, Nigel Kennedy, John Williams, Yehudi Menuhin and Soft Machine. Tonight he joins forces with sensational new vocal star Vimala Rowe, who has been gaining plaudits wherever she goes. She featured recently in Paco Pena’s Flamencura at Sadlers Wells: an indication of the breadth of her talent.

Together John and Vimala weave a magical spell, effortlessly travelling musically from India to Africa, Middle East and the USA. There will also be solos from John, taken from his celebrated show that he has performed for 10 years all over Europe. This is a unique pairing that satisfies on so many levels. A breathtaking collaboration, definitely not to be missed!
