Bryan Ferry has been announced as the Saturday headliner of the first ever Love Supreme Jazz Festival and will take to the stage on 6 July 2013.
Set against the stunning backdrop of Glynde Place in East Sussex, Bryan Ferry And The Bryan Ferry Orchestra’s performance will be the UK live premier of the material from his critically acclaimed The Jazz Age album. Split into two parts, this very special show will also include a set of hits from Ferry’s remarkable career both as a solo artist and as part of Roxy Music. Tickets are on sale NOW.
Making a very special Love Supreme Jazz Festival appearance will be multi-million selling American disco stars Chic ft. Nile Rodgers. Famed for tracks such as ‘Le Freak’, ‘I Want Your Love’ and ‘Good Times’, the legend lived on with Nile Rodgers’ songwriting and production for some of the most illustrious artists in the world. This unique set will see the band perform some of the songs from the greatest collaborations of Nile’s career including work with David Bowie, Madonna and Diana Ross.
Soul-folk singer and BBC’s Sound of 2012 winner Michael Kiwanuka also joins the bill. Since bursting onto the British music scene in 2011, the North Londoner’s debut album Home Again reached No.4 in the UK charts and earned him a Mercury Prize Nomination in 2012.
Bryan Ferry said: “I am looking forward to incorporating material from my latest album 'The Jazz Age' in the set at the Love Supreme Festival. This will be the first time the Bryan Ferry Orchestra will have played live in the UK and we will be adding vocals to several of the jazz arrangements as well as being joined by members of my regular band”.
What is sure to be a highlight in the 2013 festival calendar, these sensational artists will be joined by already announced Sunday headliner Jools Holland & his Rhythm & Blues Orchestra who has announced that Roland Gift, the Fine Young Cannibals front-man, will be his special guest vocalist alongside Ruby Turner and Louise Marshall.
