About Cleveland Watkiss: Vocal Suite & Hull Freedom Chorus

Cleveland Watkiss is known the world over for his unique vocal and improvisational talent. He’s performed with an incredible range of artists, from Stevie Wonder and Bob Dylan to Björk, Talvin Singh, Abdullah Ibrahim and the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra.

The evening opens with members of Hull’s mighty Freedom Chorus performing a new vocal piece What If…? created for and with participating singers by singer songwriter Em Whitfield Brooks. Accompanied by percussionist extraordinaire Gary Hammond and guest pianist (tbc).

Cleveland will then perform VocalSuite, his acclaimed a capella vocal improvisation show. Fusing his breath-taking vocal range with technology, he blends improvisation/counterpoint harmony, electronics, breakbeat loops and basslines (all live and from his mouth) to stunning effect, creating a unique, orchestral vocal soundscape. No two performances of VocalSuite are ever the same. On this occasion, Cleveland will be joined at the end of his performance by members of Hul
