Trudy Kerr at Herts Jazz Club

AFTER a successful gig at the Herts Jazz Festival in August, Trudy Kerr returns with her trio on Sunday night.

She is appearing at the Herts Jazz Club at Campus West, Welwyn Garden City, from 7.45pm.

Hailed as one of the country’s most polished singers, she moved to London in 1990 from her native Australia and while continuing to gig regularly, she worked during the day as secretary to clarinettist Acker Bilk.

She studied jazz at the Guildhall School of Music, getting her career break in 1995 when Ronnie Scott offered her a week at the club from which she has never looked back.

Her programme will be a mix of classic standards and lesser-known songs. She will be joined by Tom Cawley on piano, Geoff Gascoyne, bass and Sebastiaan De Krom on drums.

Tickets are �11 online at, �13 on the door and �5 for students and under-21s.
