- 1 February 2010
Cool Edinburgh jazz vocalist Niki King continues her tribute to one of the true greats of jazz Billie Holliday. ‘The time of prejudice that she worked through, the hardship and awful situations endured growing up; all of this pain and vulnerability comes through in her songs’ explains King. ‘But it is also her personal strength, courage, kindness and, of course, talent that makes her such a unique voice. Billie Holiday will always be remembered through her music. This show is a celebration of that music and of Holiday as a songwriter.’
