Monday 23 November 2009, 7pm
St Bride’s Church, Fleet Street, London
This concert will celebrate the life and music of the singer songwriter Judee Sill. She was a direct contemporary of Joni Mitchell and Carole King, toured with Graham Nash and David Crosby, and was the first artist to be signed to David Geffen’s Asylum label. Judee Sill died on 23rd November 1979 after a drug overdose.
For this concert at St Bride’s, various musicians will perform songs from Sill’s two albums Judee Sill and Heart Food, including her UK hit Jesus was a Cross Maker. Rachel will be singing that particular song, as well as half a dozen others. She’ll also play piano.
Proceeds from the evening will go to HopeUK, a charity offering drug awareness sessions to children, young people and their parents.
Ha – all this time later, someone just sent me this review of the Judee Sill gig!
