One of the strongest signs that the long-awaited return of gigs is in full flow is the return of Jumpin’ Hot Club, who are getting straight back to business with a socially-distanced evening with the acclaimed and prolific locally-based singersongwriter and author Kathryn Williams, at The Cluny 2 on Friday 11th June.

Having received regular acclaim throughout her career (including a Mercury Prize nomination for 2000’s Little Black Numbers) Williams’ music has echoes of the rich songwriting and fierce individuality of the likes of Nick Drake, John Martyn and Joni Mitchell. Considering the fact that she has released a vast array of works in the time since 1999’s debut album Dog Leap Stairs, including a staggering fourteen solo LPs (not counting side projects and collaborations with the likes of Bombay Bicycle Club, Carol Ann Duffy, Ed Harcourt and Laura Barnett) and last year’s acclaimed debut novel The Ormering Tide, there is no doubt that the evening will be a strong testament to Williams’ extensive body of work, and a rare opportunity to the see the artist in such an intimate venue. Having hosted more than 2,000 gigs over the last 36 years, it’s fantastic to see Jumpin’ Hot Club return, and this evening will undoubtedly be a bright light on the horizon as we return to normality.
