Jazz vocalist Jo Harrop pays tribute to Peggy Lee, one of the great figures of jazz and American popular song, at Chapel Arts, Cheltenham, this Friday evening.

In this wonderful show as part of the Jazz at the Chapel series, Jo Harrop pays tribute to the sultriest songstress of all. She's set to deliver moving renditions of classics such as Fever, Why Don't You Do Right and The Folks Who Live On The Hill. Jo will be accompanied by her band.

Tickets are £12 in advance, £15 on the door (students with ID £5). Doors open at 7pm and the show starts at 8pm.
