Sam Jewison: The Great American Songbook

Grand Hall | Scarborough Spa

Sam Jewison is “a Renaissance Man in a Jazz World”, whose vocal prowess and pianistic virtuosity has seen him tour internationally. His acclaimed interpretation of the Great American Songbook uniquely fuses elements of both jazz and classical music in a captivating display of artistry.

The show honours the leading lights of the Broadway stage, Hollywood screen and Harlem jazz clubs, featuring songs such as, “Night and Day”, “Cheek to Cheek”, and “Strike Up the Band”, as well as Gershwin’s masterpiece, “Rhapsody in Blue”. Jewison is accompanied by his dazzling 13-piece orchestra, including some of the UK’s finest musicians. Expect salutes to performing legends, Frank Sinatra, Judy Garland, Duke Ellington, and many more, including a particularly toe-tapping tribute to the legacy of Fred Astaire.

Jewison headlined the 2020 ReGeneration Festival in Florence and the BBC Radio 3 Christmas Special in 2021. He has performed at iconic London venues, including the West End’s Crazy Coqs, Camden’s famous Jazz Café, Westminster Abbey, and the Royal Opera House, where he made his sold-out recital debut with “The Composer in Hollywood” in March 2022. Jewison is set to headline the summer festival at the awardwinning Nevill Holt Opera House in June and will make his debut at the EFG London Jazz Festival in November.
