Hailing from Ulverston in Cumbria, Jess Gillam is animating the music world with her outstanding talent and infectious personality. After performing at the Last Night of the Proms in 2018 and having her performance described as “the indisputable highlight” by BBC News, Jess continues to grow her international career, as well as presenting on TV and radio – indeed she was the youngest ever presenter for BBC Radio 3 and now hosts a weekly show and podcast called This Classical Life where she and her musical guests chat, swap tracks and share the music they love.
Marking the first ever tour of her brilliant and youthful seven-piece Jess Gillam Ensemble, she performs a characteristically diverse and accessible programme ranging from Piazzolla’s Histoire du Tango, to Kurt Weill’s stunning Je ne t’aime pas, and Joby Talbot’s Transit of Venus.
