For one night only, Blenheim Palace will play host to a
co-headline performance of global jazz superstars Gregory Porter and
Jamie Cullum, as well as special guest performance from
singer songwriter Corinne Bailey Rae on Saturday 17th June.
The setting for this truly one off occasion will take place in the
stunning grounds of Blenheim Palace, within the palace’s
Returning to Nocturne, Gregory Porter is a talent that spans all ages. A timeless voice that is equally suited to a small jazz bar in his hometown of Sacramento, as it is to the Great Court. With his new album ‘Take Me To The Alley’ as stunning as anything he’s done before this Grammy winner is now a global superstar.
Co-headlining this concert Jamie Cullum – a true icon of the UK jazz scene. Whether it’s his weekly show for BBC Radio 2, intimate recordings for The Song Society or headline performances at festivals around the world, Jamie is an incredible musician.
Also performing is Corinne Bailey Rae; the Yorkshire born songwriter 2006 with the enchanting ‘Like A Star’ and chart topping ‘Put Your Records On’. Following the huge success of her new album ‘The Heart Speaks in Whispers’ last year, she tops off an incredible line up of talent for this special evening.
Whilst Cullum makes his first return to Blenheim Palace since his career-defining, sell-out concert in 2004, Porter returns following his show with Van Morrison at the first Nocturne in 2015 and Bailey Rae will make her debut at the World Heritage Site fresh off the back of a global tour in 2016.
The Nocturne Concert Arena will be open from 4:30pm, music starts at 6pm and will finish at 11pm. There will be two 30 minute intervals.
