A member of The Puppini Sisters is to perform in Cirencester at the weekend.

Fresh from her live Cheltenham Jazz Festival debut show, Emma Smith is set to play Entertainment at Ingleside.

Emma has performed everywhere from the O2, the Graham Norton Show and jazz clubs in New York as well as performing with Michael Bublé, Georgie Fame and Seal. But she is best known for her role as one-third of the chart-topping harmony group – The Puppini Sisters.

Cirencester’s Ingleside House welcomes Emma for a one-off show on Saturday.

Stuart Matthew Price, who runs Entertainment at Ingleside, said: “This is quite a coup for us. Emma is a top act and has appeared all over the world. I personally cannot wait to see her live again.

“She will be joined by the hugely dynamic Jamie Safir on piano, this one-night event promises to be an intimate evening of jazz wonders not to be missed.”

This year Emma released her first solo album in 10 years. 

In a nod to her proud Jewish heritage, ‘Meshuga Baby’ is a play on words based on ‘Meshuge’, the Yiddish word for ‘crazy’ - a judgment that Smith describes as “so often passed on brave ambitious women that are not afraid express their opinions and showcase their talent.” 

In her show, The American-ish Songbook, Emma will celebrate legendary American Jewish composers with songs written by George Gershwin, Rodgers & Hammerstein, Irving Berlin, Bob Dylan and Kurt Weil.

Emma will reflect on her own Jewish heritage and pay a fitting tribute to this great cannon of work.

The show will take place in the grounds of Ingleside, in the pavilion space behind Téatro’s Firepit garden dining area.

Ticket prices are from £45-£60 which includes a three-course dinner prepared by head chef – Pierre Needham. A limited number of non-dining seats are available from £35.
