Elaine Delmar is widely recognised as a “Grand Dame’ among British female jazz singers. She was raised in a strong musical environment. Her father was the renowned trumpeter Leslie ‘Jiver’ Hutchinson, a leading influence in the jazz and dance band movement in Britain from the 1930s onwards. After initially learning classical piano, she followed a natural progression towards singing and became a vocalist in her father’s own band at sixteen.

Her stellar recording career has spanned some 60 years. She’s equally at home in the concert hall – she appeared with Andy Williams at the Free Trade Hall in Manchester and Michel Legrand and the LSO at the Royal Albert Hall – and in smaller venues. She makes regular and very popular appearances at Ronnie Scott’s.

Elaine has also had a successful career as an actress on the London stage and on Broadway, receiving critical acclaim for her role in Map Of The World at the National Theatre.

For this event, she’ll be supported by guitar legend Jim Mullen, a major figure on the UK scene in his own right.
