Acclaimed Irish jazz singer Stella Bass celebrates 100 years of American icon Ella Fitzgerald, one of the most unique, innovative singers of all time. Amassing 13 Grammys and 40 million albums sales over an astounding 60-year career, Ella could sing sultry ballads, sweet jazz, pop tunes and imitate any instrument in the orchestra. Born in 1917, she worked with all the greats – Ellington, Basie, Sinatra, Gillespie, Armstrong – and packed out venues worldwide, including Dublin’s Adelphi Theatre in 1964. Jazz singer Stella Bass pays tribute to the life and music of Lady Ella, accompanied by internationally-acclaimed guitarist, Hugh Buckley.
