MARA SIMPSON & Victoria Park Singers – 24 May 2018, 7.30pm

Mara Simpson

Mara is a British songwriter who has captivated audiences around the world with her soulful melodies, rich lyricism, unassuming charm and wicked laugh. With a style of songwriting equally as eclectic as her background, Mara delivers an old soul voice with a unique perspective, quoted by New Zealand Musician Magazine as ‘Soulful, sincere, warm, rich and intimate. Simpson’s influences come from a veritable melting pot of acoustic genres, the result is a perfectly balanced blend of folk, blues, and Americana.

Victoria Park Singers is a non-auditioned community choir formed by Hannah Brine in 2013. We have performed across London, including at St John at Hackney, Union Chapel, Rich Mix, the Museum of Childhood, and the Royal London Hospital. Since we formed we have raised over £13,000 for various charities. This time last year ladies from our choir were lucky enough to
perform at the Royal Variety show with Gary Barlow and the cast of his musical, Girls, based on the Calendar Girls true story, and in March members performed again with Gary as the opening act for the 2017 Olivier Awards in the Royal Albert Hall. Choir members could also be spotted this year on BT Sport, being “conducted” by football legend Gary Lineker.
