About

Peggy's Skylight | Nottingham

24th July 2022

A sophisticated sound; 'bluesy and breathtakingly ballsy', Peggy's founders Rachel & Paul play their unique take on masters past & present...

Kick back & relax with our Sunday afternoon jazz & meze sessions…
Dining from 12pm

Performance 1-3pm (with interval)
Tickets: £8-£10

Prior to setting up Peggy's Skylight, Rachel and Paul performed both separately & together in many settings, but their project, 'Me & Mr Jones' has endured. Writing songs together, adding their unique twist to classics from the Great American Songbook, they take inspiration from Nina Simone, Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, Etta James as well as the rich canon of jazz and popular music composers past & present

Rachel Foster; Jazz and pop chanteuse, once likened to Tracy Thorn and Sade (only phatter!) 'A voice like Baileys with chocolate!' Toured US with Weekend Players earning Billboard Chart success at no.3 and reaching no.1 in the Dance Chart respectively. Rachel also collaborated with local hero's Bent, Shod and Crazy P to name but a few. A voice mature enough to command demanding music.

Paul Deats; Jazz, Funk, Blues piano. 'A powerful and intense player, ..lyrical and thoughtful'
Paul (aka Paulus) has toured Europe and the UK extensively. He is a constantly inventive arranger and composer making him a much sought after player, performer and collaborator.

Rachel & Paul will be joined by long time collaborator, Simon Paterson on double bass
"Paterson's playing on several instruments is deft" – Jazz Journal
