Gill Manly began singing at an early age, never believing that she would one day rub shoulders with the great Eartha Kitt, whilst performing in Chelsea. Raised on a diet of jazz records by her father, Gill naturally began to immerse herself in the Great American Songbook. Aged 18, she headed for London to Drama School where she began to perform. Encouraged by her voice teachers, Gill tried her hand at opera and auditioned for the Royal College of Music. Turned down she decided to leave drama school a year early and get down to the business of working. Chosen to perform in various fringe musicals in London's West End, Gill soon discovered that her real love lay in musical theatre and the great Broadway Shows. Thus the singer was born.
Join us and Gill with her Jazz trio to celebrate Crystal Palace Overground Festival weekend with this special evening of Jazz music.
