Jess is enjoying a stratospheric career trajectory, beginning as a finalist in the 2016 BBC Young Musician of the Year and a phenomenal Last Night of the Proms performance featuring Milhaud’s Scaramouche, memorable for its sheer joy and exuberance. Jess’s number one debut album Rise and BBC Radio 3 show have allowed audiences all over the world to delight in her charismatic personality and passion for music. Her Mid-day programme is high-energy including the manically virtuosic RANT!, written for her and incorporating folk tunes from her native Cumbria. Jess’s natural stage presence and approachable communication style means this will be an outstanding and unmissable performance.
Please note, James Baillieu replaces Zeynep Özsuca on the piano.
