In the setting of voice, bass and guitar, Sophie Bancroft and Tom Lyne create a dynamic, entertaining and intimate interpretation of beautiful songs. Their repertoire includes Sophie’s original folk-inflected jazz songs, informed by both the vibrant Scottish jazz scene and the rich traditional music culture in which she has grown up, stunning jazz standards and songs from other genres which invite the jazz treatment, including songs by the Bard himself, Robbie Burns, and the likes of Dolly Parton. Recent performance highlights include the Xerox Rochester International Jazz Festival in New York where they were heralded as a ‘must see’ act.
