Music soothes a homesick heart in an adventure that takes in the story of jazz, from the Caribbean to London. The recommended age group for this show is 6-12 but will be enjoyed by the whole family.

Evelyn, a young woman living in Jamaica, decides to travel with her new husband to England, hoping for exciting new opportunities. 

But she misses the sounds, scenery and sunshine of island life. Then Evelyn finds a new market selling exotic fruits and is transported back to Jamaica. 

This tiny piece of home away from home gives Evelyn new hope. Over time, she is able to join a welcoming community of fellow Caribbean migrants, and London becomes her happy home. 

Evelyn & The Yellow Birds is presented by Evelyn’s granddaughter Cherise Adams-Burnett, Jazz FM Vocalist of the Year 2019, with a live band accompaniment.

The show is the perfect way for the whole family to learn more about the melting pot of influences across the jazz genre.
