Ian Shaw and Gill Manly: Guilty Pleasures. Pizza Express Dean Street, Sunday 10 October. Preview by Fran Hardcastle
Another chance this Sunday to catch two of the country’s best singers, Ian Shaw and Gill Manly reveal their Guilty Pleasures at Pizza Express Dean Street. Shaw and Manly have similar capacities in their extensive vocal ranges and ability to guide the listener through a vast emotional spectrum using the most subtle nuance of expression.
Manly’s interesting and varied career has included stints hosting residencies with guest artists such as Eartha Kitt and Blossom Dearie. As a result her stage presence is powerful and assured. The phenomenal singer/pianist that is Shaw offers the complete package of a vocal to catch your breath supplemented with a repartee to match the wittiest of comedians. With a friendship stretching back to the early eighties, expect warm camaraderie between both singers and audience as they go through their chocolate box of songs. Sarah Ellen Hughes reviewed the pair back in April and was not disappointed.
