The second jazz brunch at Spiritland Royal Festival Hall welcomes a very rare and distinctive talent - Luca Manning.

‘Once in a very great while a performer comes along who is touched by greatness, who mixes a incredible, innate ability with insight, great wit and a knowledge of the great artists who have preceded them. Luca Manning is such an artist...’

Luca Manning is an individual - an exciting artist with a big voice and a story to tell. Shaped initially by the buzzing Glasgow music and arts scene, Luca now finds their heart stolen by all that East London has to offer. Stylistically androgynous in both their music and presentation, Luca continually blurs lines and questions rigidity at every opportunity. Luca’s journey so far has included collaborating with Glasgow nujazz collective corto.alto, performing at Inntöne Festival in Austria and collaborating with dancer, choreographer and all round icon Steph Burrell. In their spare time Luca enjoys dancing to disco, turning lewks and dreaming of the day they’ll own a baby sausage dog called Aretha.

Luca’s music aims to create an immersive experience ; telling stories with song, spoken word and improvisation.
For this gig, they’ll premier some new original material and will be joined by Hugo Piper and Christos Stylianides.

Come along for the adventure and experience it for yourself x

“...It’s a very direct, at times gut-wrenching voice, without any redundant gimmicks or bragging shenanigans.”
