On the 29th of June, Hexham's newest music and arts venue, the Vault, situated on Hallgate, will play host to one of the region's best loved and most enduring entertainers. Ruth Lambert is known the length of breadth of the North East for her unique interpretation of the Great American Songbook; the collection of songs composed by Cole Porter, George Gershwin, Jerome Kern and many others, and made famous by singers such as Frank Sinatra and Ella Fitzgerald. Her repertoire includes timeless classics including Summertime, The Lady is a Tramp and My Funny Valentine.
Since graduating from the University of Strathclyde with a First Class Honours in music, Ruth has sung in all of the major music venues in the region and beyond. In 2000, she was awarded a special commendation at the Boosey and Hawke Big Band Competition, an award usually given to instrumentalists. More recently she has performed with smaller ensembles and is in great demand as a vocal tutor at the Sage Concert Hall and Newcastle University.
Ruth will be accompanied by Andy Champion on double bass and Lloyd Wright on guitar. Doors open at 7 – 15 pm with the music starting at 7 – 45. There is a licensed bar at the venue.
Tickets cost £15 and are available at The Haslam Gallery on Hallgate online at the Gallery or by contacting concert promoter, Peter Drake by email (email@example.com).
