Tatiana Eva-Marie was born in Switzerland and from an early age she developed a love of swing and gypsy jazz.
She now lives in New York where she leads the Avalon Jazz Band and has enchanted audiences around the world with the gentle clarity of her voice and her natural, joie de vivre style, which have earned her an international following with more than 70 million YouTube views.
The event at Salle Park, from 4–6 pm (including an interval), is being organised by local furniture maker Michael Westgate, who has collaborated with international jazz harpist Ben Creighton Griffiths to bring Tatiana to the UK for just two concerts – the first time she has performed in this country for six years.
Cardiff-based Ben has performed regularly in North Norfolk with his Transatlantic Hot Club to enthusiastic audiences and will be leading a string trio to accompany her.
Tickets are priced at £28 (under 16s £14) and can be purchased online HERE. Please bring your own chairs/blankets; you are welcome to bring a picnic. Gate opens at 3.30 pm.
The car park entrance is on Cawston Road. There is a walk of about 400 metres from the car park to the garden site.
The performance will go ahead regardless of the weather, so come prepared!
