One of the greatest jazz singers of all time, Billie Holiday expressed a depth of emotion like no other. Paving the way for many female artists and activists, Holiday resisted traditional gender roles of her time, took a stand for human solidarity, became a song writer and created a lasting musical legacy.

Paying homage to the great Lady Day, Jackie Bornstein will perform a selection of her personal favourites from Holiday's iconic recordings. Featuring the classic Holiday signature songs "Body And Soul" and "Strange Fruit", Holiday's own compositions including "Don't Explain" and "Stormy Blues", plus tunes from Holiday's discography composed by Duke Ellington, George Gershwin, Cole Porter and more. Featuring the talents of:
