NEWS: Lineup for ReVoice! 2013 Announced

Award-winning vocalist Georgia Mancio has just announced the 4th edition of her annual ReVoice! festival – held over ten days (from 10th – 19th October), with over forty artists – at Pizza Express, Dean St.

We spoke to Georgia earlier this morning, and asked her to give a flavour of a couple of the gigs: “I’m really pleased to be presenting Carmen Souza, an artist based here and in Portugal who has just taken off all round the world. To hear her in a small London club is going to be something really special.

I’m also excited about Barbara Raimondi and Tony Kofi; last time she was at Revoice it was in a Latin trio performing gentle and beautiful Cuban songs. This is the flip side – Reinventing Ornette Coleman…transcribed solos with lyrics…only a great singer could do that!”

The festival (which opens with the deep Kansas City baritone of Kevin Mahogany, heir to the tradition of Joe Williams and Jonny Hartman, and closes with the Texan Soul of Carleen Anderson) will also feature artists like Tina May, Allan Harris, and Sofia Rei, each gig supported by Mancio with a variety of guests.
