Mica Paris sings Ella Fitzgerald at Hever Castle
Monday, May 27th
Rye Jazz Festival proudly present Mica Paris in concert at the beautiful, unique and intimate setting of Hever Castle & Gardens Festival Theatre.
Mica Paris is one of the UK’s most respected female singers with a career that is full of Top 10 hit singles and worldwide albums. She will take the stage at Hever Castle for a special night where she will be singing songs by the First Lady of Song, Ella Fitzgerald.
Mica Sings Ella is not a tribute album. “I’ve seen good tribute bands, but this is more me reinterpreting Ella my way. Paying homage to her.” Mica compares Fitzgerald’s life to that of Billie Holiday, a Fitzgerald contemporary. “Billie was around at the same time, but Billie Holiday got more press because of the drug use and also because she was better looking. Ella wasn’t really a face. But my God what a voice.” It’s a voice that Mica is not trying to imitate but celebrate.
Ticket holders will have access to Hever Castle Gardens from 6:30pm where you can wander, enjoy a picnic or meal at the cafe. There is a fully licensed bar onsite.
