with Carroll Thomspon
Known the world over as ‘The Queen Of Lovers Rock’, Carroll Thompson burst on the scene in 1980, straight from the gospel traditions of her grandmother’s home, with a million-selling self-penned debut album. ‘Hopelessly In Love’ stayed in the UK reggae charts for an amazing and record-breaking two and a half years, much of that time in the Number 1 slot.
Now Carroll has a new album, Where Did Our Lovers Go? which celebrates her deep and long-standing love of jazz. With some of the top jazz-reggae crossover musicians in the UK she gives a series of jazz classics a new shine and an irresistible Caribbean bounce. Carroll has sung with Stevie Wonder, Tom Jones, Art Blakey, Sting, Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry, Sade and many more. This is a special opportunity to hear her open a swinging new chapter in musical life.
