The Music Room - Live!

Our event in April 2015 was headlined by

Louise Parker

Live music from Louise Parker

Growing up in a house filled with the music of calypso, opera and folk (enjoyed by her Jamaican-born mother) plus swing and be-bop (from her jazz-loving father) it was inevitable that as a jazz singer, Louise Parker would soon establish a huge reputation amongst jazz enthusiasts for her uniquely warm and soulful style.

Louise is a powerful live performer and a skilful interpreter of swing, blues and gospel classics, combining an effortless rhythmical style, a perfectly controlled tone, and an endearing personality to create a truly unforgettable experience.

Louise was joined by three of Devon's hottest jazz instrumentalists:

Here's a recording of them playing 'The music is the magic':
