Christine Collister in The Sun
One of the UK’s finest singers will bring her blend of jazz, soul and folk to Hitchin on Sunday.
Christine Collister has recorded 17 albums over a 26-year career in which she has interpreted artists as diverse as Smoky Robinson, Tom Waits and U2, while penning her own beautiful songs.
Growing up on the Isle of Man, she first came to national attention singing the theme for the BBC series The Life and Loves of a She Devil. A fruitful collaboration with The Richard Thompson Band followed. And she enjoyed a period of critical and commercial success in a seven-year partnership with Clive Gregson – as well as touring and recording with Daphne’s Flight.
Over the course of Christine’s career she has become a familiar name on the international festival scene appearing everywhere from Glastonbury to Winnipeg.
Support at the Hitchin Folk Club gig is from Rob Cross – a genre-hopping singer-songwriter with a strong bluesy voice.
