Sarah Jane Morris – Sweet Little Mystery
The Black Box
Sunday 10 May, 2.00pm
Sarah Jane Morris is a singer with an astonishing vocal range. Her thirty-year career, which has garnered her a loyal and loving international audience, has been wide-ranging and her rich contralto voice goes from strength to strength
In 1986 she toured the world with The Communards when their song Don’t Leave Me This Way became a worldwide number one hit. She also performed with bands including The Test Department, The Redskins, The Annie Whitehead band and The Republic.
In May 2019 Sarah released Sweet Little Mystery, an album of songs by Scottish singer/songwriter John Martyn. The album is a joint project between Sarah Jane Morris and long-term collaborator, guitarist Tony Remy. Together they pay homage to the sublime genius of John Martyn -a restless, often self-destructive artist whose unique voice and music is both breathtakingly bold and achingly tender in its beauty.
Directed by comedian/activist Mark Thomas, the show enjoyed a sell-out run at this year’s Edinburgh Fringe gaining 5 star reviews across the board.
‘. . . her take on the music of John Martyn, the late singer/songwriter who straddled folk, blues, jazz and rock – as indeed does Morris – felt incandescent.’ – EVENING STANDARD
‘Morris does not interpret soul. She IS soul, with all its passion and pain, joy and sorrow, hard times and highs.’ – MONTREAL GAZETTE
‘Torch song, soul standard or smoky blues, the message remains constant: human passion with a dazzling voice.’ – THE OBSERVER
