These Candlelit Tribute Concerts To Ella Fitzgerald And Louis Armstrong Are Coming To Manchester

By Laura Rogan

Wind down to the wondrous sounds of smooth jazz.

Ever wondered what it’s like to immerse yourself in the sounds of jazz legends? Well… Now’s your chance, because Jazz by Candlelight is coming to Manchester – with some incredible tributes in-store to some of the best musicians in history.

Showcasing the joy of jazz is a wonderful tribute to Ray Charles, – the acclaimed American singer-songwriter is best known for pioneering the soul genre – some of the North West’s finest musicians are set to team up for an evening of beautiful music with stunning candlelit surrounds, performing some of Charles’ historical tracks which made him one of the most influential musicians of all time.

But for those looking for something a little more soulful, guests can enjoy a spectacular tribute concert to the Queen Aretha Franklin this November, again, featuring top talent who’ll be performing some of the beloved artist and civil rights activist’s back catalogue in a very special, intimate setting. The event will transform one of Manchester’s most beautiful venues, too, so expect an evening filled with decadence all round.

Not only that, but there’ll also be shows dedicated to the fantastic Nina Simone, the legendary Ray Charles and even Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong – giving fans the opportunity to hear their incredible compositions brought back to life right here in Manchester. Each event will be dripping in candlelight, and we have some breathtaking venues in store for each show.

For the more general jazz fans, the bestselling Jazz by Candlelight will also be returning for a show on November 6, which will see Manchester Cathedral decorated to the nines with candles, providing an unbeatable ambience where you’ll be treated to gorgeous jazz compositions, prosecco, and an all round relaxing evening.
