Becca Stevens Band / Luca Manning & Alan Benzie
Dundee Rep, Saturday 18 November at 8pm
Acclaimed by The New York Times and heralded as the successor to Joni Mitchell, the Brooklyn-based singer, songwriter, band-leader and multi-instrumentalist delivers spellbinding performances. Combining personally-charged songwriting and impassioned vocals, she draws upon elements of pop, jazz, and traditional Appalachian folk from her native North Carolina to create vivid, adventurous arrangements of covers from Steve Winwood to Frank Ocean via Joni Mitchell and Stevie Wonder.
A spellbinding Scottish duo playing impeccable standards open the concert. With Luca Manning – a phenomenal new voice with a luminous tone and expressive phrasing – and pianist, Alan Benzie.
