Anthony Strong

Saturday 10th July, 6:30pm to 8pm, main stage

'A major new talent' Metro

'It's impossible to withstand the dynamism of his live show' Libération

The uplifting and feel good vibes of the exceptional Anthony Strong are just what we need to bring us out of lockdown hibernation! 10 years, 4 albums and over 300 shows since his debut release, British singer-pianist Anthony Strong has established a reputation as a charismatic singer, a swinging pianist and, above all, a consummate performer.

Anthony delivers a fresh upbeat take on a heady mix of jazz & blues through to Mowtown and soul, songs made famous by Louis Armstrong, Charlie Chaplin and Ella Fitzgerald sit alongside those by Stevie Wonder & Johnny Cash. Amongst these gems, a sprinkling of originals which could easily have come from a bygone era.

He has played across the world, from LA's Hollywood Bowl in the West to Shanghai Jazz Week in the East, and at many of Europe's leading theatres, jazz clubs and festivals. Now it is our turn, for Anthony to heat up the stage at Burton Agnes.

Pee Wee Ellis

Saturday 10th July 2021, 8:30pm-10pm, main stage

Saxophone playing legend Pee Wee Ellis comes to Burton Agnes this summer. Pee Wee's impressive career spans seven decades. He first arrived on the scene travelling to New York in the 1950s with saxophone in hand, in pursuit of his heroes Miles Davis, Thelonious Monk and the great Sonny Rollins. Sonny became his teacher and mentor. He joined James Brown in 1965. Within six months he was bandleader, musical director, and co-writing James Brown's hits. 'Cold Sweat' regarded as the first true funk record, and many of JB's hits for the next four years, including 'Say it Loud, I'm Black and I'm Proud', were the fruit of this collaboration.

Pee Wee had two stints as Van Morrisons' band leader. He has an pursued an impressive solo jazz career in Europe, and ensconced himself as one of the legendary players and influencers of the Jazz and Funk scene.
