WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Carleen Anderson is American music royalty. Her mother, Vicki Anderson, was James Brown's favourite vocalist and her stepfather Bobby Byrd founded the Famous Flames. Now Carleen - a Mercury-nominated star of soul and acid jazz - honours her family's history in Texas and Mississippi with Cage Street Memorial; a moving testament to her gospel roots and her personal journey from the Deep South to the UK.
Carleen's astonishingly soulful voice has won numerous awards and accolades including Jazz FM's Best UK Vocalist. Backed by her own keyboards and an all-star quartet, Carleen blends styles from jazz, soul and gospel to opera and chamber music for an unforgettable evening.
