Concert SOLD OUT
Hot on the heels of Kandace Spring’s stunning Cheltenham Jazz Festival performance where she stunned audiences with her ‘intimate, low-key jazz-infused approach’, we are thrilled to have Kandace perform at the festival this year in what will undoubtedly be a wonderful intimate concert, featuring material from her impressive new album Soul Eyes.
There’s an increasingly loud buzz around Kandace Springs and rightfully so! The 27-year-old Nashville-based singer-pianist combines old-soul jazz sophistication with a tasteful touch of R&B and pop.
“This gently acoustic, sophisticated and affecting album is one of the year’s best so far” - The Times
“Embracing mentor Prince’s advice to ‘be who you are,’ the artist crafts a winning fusion of jazz and soul” - Billboard
“A unique pop-jazz sound that owes no debts” - Jazz Times
Situated in the heart of old Rye, and providing marvelous views over the surrounding area and coast from its tower, St Mary’s has stood for the best part of 1000 years and is home to the oldest still-functioning pendulum clock in the country . It has some fine stained glass, including a window designed by the pre-Raphaelite Burne-Jones in the north aisle. St Mary’s provides a wonderful setting for our live events throughout the festival and has hosted artists including Antonio Forcione, Sarah Jane Morris, Ian Shaw and Ola Onabule.
