Clare Teal gave her first highly successful Thaxted jazz concert during the 2005 Festival. It feels very good to welcome her back. Since then, her career as singer and broadcaster has developed by leaps and bounds. Clare has been awarded British jazz vocalist of the year three times, the latest in 2015. Her tally of record albums has grown to 15, seven of them on her own label MUD records. In 2009 she started presenting her own show on BBC Radio 2 on Sunday nights. She regularly appears as a presenter on Friday Night is Music Night. Awarded Arts & Entertainment Personality of the Year twice, Clare now holds an honorary Doctorate of Music from the University of Wolverhampton, where she first studied.
