Valentine Jazz Evening

Saturday 17th February 2024
at the Isle of Purbeck GC

The Isle of Purbeck Golf Club in partnership with the Swanage Jazz Club, proudly present Jo Harrop & Fraser Urquhart performing a set of stunning jazz ballads to celebrate the romance of Valentine’s weekend.

Singer/Songwriter Jo Harrop, having just returned from playing at some of the top jazz venues in New York, LA and San Franscisco is most at home, singing smokey torch songs at the piano, and there’s no finer pianist to accompany her on these timeless intimate songs, than Scottish pianist, Fraser Urquhart. Songs such as Burton Lanes’ Too Late Now, Victor Youngs’ My Foolish Heart, and David Manns’ Wee Small Hours Of The Morning, are amongst the beautiful works of art in the set.

You are warmly invited to join them for an intimate evening of intimate and sultry jazz, at The Isle of Purbeck Golf Club.

Jo Harrop

Born in Durham, UK and raised on a heady musical diet of Nina Simone and Aretha Franklin, Jo Harrop moved to London and quickly established herself as one of the most unmistakable voices in British jazz.

With an achingly beautiful chocolate and cream voice that sends a shiver down your spine every time you hear her sing, it’s no surprise that Jo Harrop has received a raft of rave reviews and attracted a host of influential fans since she first burst into the spotlight a few short years ago. “She is a very fine jazz singer,” Iggy Pop recently gushed. “When she sings, she moves me.”

Fraser Urquhart

One of the most in-demand young jazz musicians on the scene, pianist Fraser Urquhart has been making a name for himself performing elegant and artful straight-ahead jazz, drawn from a deep love and appreciation of the music. Son of jazz guitarist Dougie Urquhart, Fraser seeks out mentors from near and far, such as his hero Brian Kellock and major NYC pianist Michael Kanan, serving his unending drive to develop his craft. From tender ballads through fiery tempos, Fraser’s natural swing and classy tone highlight his impeccable talent and have seen him perform alongside a long-list of local legends as well as features on BBCs Jazz Nights at the Quay, and a great many festivals including major slots with Edinburgh Jazz & Blues Festival.
