Carol Grimes performs excerpts from her autobiography ‘The Singer’s Tale’ alongside a talented band of musicians: Alison Rayner (bass), Deirdre Cartwright (guitar), Steve Lodder (piano) and Winston Clifford (drums).
‘The Singer’s Tale’ depicts Carol’s life as a musician, following her days as a busking musician to performing at some of London’s best-known venues. The singer’s Tale is an emotional roller coaster that is challenging and inspirational.
Carol Grimes is a British singer, songwriter, poet and author, a towering presence in the UK music scene; from busking in the streets as a teenager to touring internationally with the contemporary classical group The Shout and her two solo albums in Memphis, it is safe to say Carol is a truly genre-busting artist. Having turned to jazz and blues, her music embraces drama and love.
