Free live music continues throughout August and will take place in Leopold Square every Friday evening and on Saturday and Sunday afternoons.
Sheffield-based JUBE, whose influences range from the introspection of Portishead and lush keyboards of Supertramp, to the jazz infusions of Sade and the classic soul sound of Aretha Franklin, get the live music started on Friday 4th August. Blue Seven Jazz will make guests on the terraces tap their toes on Saturday 5th, and Grumpah bring the fun on Sunday 6th.
Playing songs from Gershwin to Gaga, Grumpah are quirky and entertaining, and for an extra special performance, they will be joined by special guest Under the Stars – a local charity which uses creativity and the performing arts to enhance the lives of people with learning disabilities and/or autism.
Billie Johnson takes over Leopold Square on Friday 11th August and will be performing a varied repertoire of hits from the likes of Santana, Jill Scott and D'Angelo.
Sheffield blues brother Jack T Harper steps into the limelight on Saturday 12th, and the ever-popular Nicola Farnon Quartet brings the weekend celebrations to a close with a combination of sparkling jazz vocals and highly accomplished double bass playing on Sunday 13th.
The summer of free live music continues the following weekend when Dead Mans Uke will be entertaining visitors with old school blues on Friday 18th August, and Leopold Square favourites Lindsay Dracass and Ryan Taylor will be playing live on Saturday 19th and Sunday 20th August.
Lovers of jazz, soul and funk classics will enjoy Emily West who will be wowing audiences on Friday 25th August, before the son of a preacher man, Steve Edwards, brings the summer vibes on Saturday 26th. Steve is one of the most successful singer/songwriter/performers in house music today. He has worked with many acclaimed artists including Basement Jaxx, Pete Tong, and Shapeshifters, and has had four #1s on the US Billboard Dance Club Charts.
JJ's Cocktail Club, which features Leopold Square regular Jenny Chamberlain Smith, will have visitors swinging to the sounds of pop music throughout the ages when they bring August's live music to a close on Sunday 27th.
All live music takes place in Leopold Square between 5pm and 7pm on Fridays and 2pm and 4.30pm on Saturdays and Sundays. Due to inclement weather, the live music may move to inside one of the venues. More information about all performers can be found on our event pages.
