Lunchtime Concert: Emilia Mårtensson
MONDAY 06 JANUARY - 1:00 PM
Presented by the University of Southampton Music Department
Emilia Mårtensson is a London based Swedish vocalist and composer of considerable repute.
Emilia has built a well- deserved reputation as one of the most exciting vocalists on the UK Jazz scene and she was awarded ‘Vocalist of the Year-2016′ at The Parliamentary Jazz Awards. Her gently expressive voice and highly personal compositions are firmly rooted within the folklore and countryside of her native southern Sweden, adding to the mystique and allure of a distinctive and truly original artist.
For today’s lunchtime concert, Emilia will be joined by Matt Robinson on Piano (Snowpoet) and Mobo Award Winning Adam Waldmann on saxophones (Kairos 4tet). This will be followed by a workshop with Emilia and her band for vocal students from the Music Department at the University of Southampton.
