When Jessica Walker and Joe Atkins visited us at the Granary in November 2021 to film their work, we knew we had to bring them back to give a concert. Jess Walker is an extraordinarily versatile artist, described as 'a bewitching performer' (New York Times) whose acclaimed one-woman shows have been performed internationally. With her collaborative partner, pianist-composer Joseph Atkins, Jess has created SONGS FOR OUR TIMES, a bold, beautiful, wry, witty and poignant reflection on the times we live in. Woven in between the newly composed songs, are numbers from two of the most iconic singer-songwriters of the 20th century, Jacques Brel and Barbara. SONGS FOR OUR TIMES promises an unforgettable, unique evening of theatre, cabaret and thought-provoking music from these two exceptional artists. 

 

'This isn't cabaret as seduction, but statement and confession, and it is mesmerising and intense' Planet Hugill

 
SONGS FOR OUR TIMES was a 2021 commission from Lichfield Festival. It was originally filmed for the festival before Jess & Joe transformed it into a live stage show for the Granary and other venues. 
 
 
 

This concert runs for approximately 60 minutes without an interval
