Lucy Shropshire: The Songbird of Jazz

Friday, June 15, 2018
Jazz N Soul Music welcomes the SongBird of Jazz Lucy Shropshire to Ellas's SpeakEasy at the Morehead Tavern.

Like many fine singers Lucy's musical roots were nurtured in church singing gospel and playing piano and organ for church choirs. After studying voice at UNC-Charlotte, Lucy sang along the east coast with various jazz bands and performers. Soon she moved west performing in many major performance venues in Reno, San Francisco, Las Vegas and the surrounding areas. During her career Lucy has sung with and for some very well known artists of our time, including jazz greats Dizzy Gillespie, Big Al McKibbon, and the Duke Ellington Orchestra as featured in the touring Broadway Musical "Sophisticated Ladies starring Mary Wilson". She sang alongside such gospel greats as John P. Kee, Vanessa bell Armstrong, Darryl Coley, and Andre' Crouche. More recently Lucy sang with Clint Holmes, David Cassidy and recorded with Clint Holmes and Gladys Knight.

Over the years Lucy Shropshire has been acknowledged as one of the most formidable artist of our time. She has her own unique style and presence. She has been labelled the "Songbird of Jazz" and will quickly win you over with her classic yet contemporary vocal style.
