Formed in October 2015 by composer and vocal experimentalist Jenni Roditi, TIC is a mixed-style, cross-genre professional ensemble exploring, through improvisation, what is behind the genre identity accumulated through each singer’s history. What happens when these adept singers, usually separated by repertoires, meet in the same musical space, where there is no repertoire, only the artists themselves? As they sing together they aim to discover how they can meet and make new vocal relationships together beyond any one repertoire.
'Lively. Talented. Fun'
'Unusual, impressive, weird in a wonderful way'
'Very impressive and uplifting and courageous. Lots of sensitive communication'
“Best Jazz Vocalist” at the BBC Jazz Awards in 2007 and 2004, and nominated in the Best UK Vocalist category at the JazzFM awards in 2013, Ian Shaw has already amassed a number of highly acclaimed internationally released albums and is a popular performer both in the UK and the US. He has been cited, along with Mark Murphy and Kurt Elling, as one of the world’s finest male jazz vocalists.
Honouring the history of the building as an ex-British Legion social club, and community, the Earl Haig Hall was reopened in 2013 to give the folk of Crouch End, and beyond something different from their local pub. The Earl Haig Hall has a wonderfully retro atmosphere, bursting with character and charm. Just a short hop from Crouch End (5 minutes' walk) or Finsbury Park (W3 or W7 bus).
