The Great American Songbook is the canon of the most important and most influential American popular songs of the 20th century – principally created for Broadway theatre, musical theatre, and Hollywood musical film in the United States.
Written from the 1920s to the 1950s, recorded and performed by a wide range of musicians, these songs are considered of enduring popularity.
The concert promises to be a swinging one, with Shadley leading the party on a journey through a century of America’s greatest music.
