Hoagy II – The Chris Ingham Quartet

Venue: The Corn Hall
Ten years after their acclaimed album Hoagy, the Chris Ingham Quartet – Chris Ingham (piano/vocal), Paul Higgs (trumpet), Simon Thorpe (Bass) & George Double (Drums) – follow up with a new CD and a further joyful set of the wry, wise and beautiful songs of songwriter-singer-pianist Hoagy Carmichael (1899-1981), famous for timeless melodies Stardust, Georgia On My Mind and Skylark.
Hoagy II is a show rich with anecdote, insight and delightful curiosities from a unique and varied songbook.
