Highlights of the music line-up:

A fantastic live performer, Dee Dee Bridgewater is one of today’s leading female jazz vocal stars. She brings her own unique spin on jazz standards to Norwich Theatre Royal, and Snarky Puppy’s stunning keyboard player Bill Laurance opens the night with a rare solo performance. Naturally 7 celebrate the beauty of the human voice in their distinct and charming a cappella style, performing classics such as ‘In the Air Tonight’ and ‘Fix You’ in ways you’ve never heard them before, and Brad Mehldau and his trio come to Norwich to perform music from their latest album Blues and Ballads. The Adnams Spiegeltent will be host to a number of international contemporary musicians from Colombian percussion-based street music to vocal fusions of Angolan hip hop and rock & roll, and Norwich Playhouse enjoys Senegalese kora, Portuguese guitar and Estonian electronic folk.
