English jazz-pop singer-songwriter Jamie Cullum is a BRIT award winner and a Golden Globe nominee [for “Gran Torino” from the Clint Eastwood motion picture.]

His well-respected seventh studio album titled “Interlude” covered songs made famous by other luminaries such as Ray Charles, Randy Newman, Sufjan Stevens and Dizzy Gillespie.

American singer, songwriter Gregory Porter won a Grammy Award for Best Jazz Vocal Album in 2014 with “Liquid Spirit” and again this month [2017] for “Take Me to the Alley.”

In 2016 Porter performed on the Pyramid Stage at the Glastonbury Festival.

Corinne Bailey Rae is a British singer-songwriter Leeds, West Yorkshire.

She has been nominated for three Grammy Awards and three Brit Awards and has won two MOBO Awards. She can be heard singing Coldplay’s “The Scientist” on the Original Motion Picture Soundtrack for Fifty Shades Darker.

In 2008, she won a Grammy for Album of the Year (for her work as a featured artist on Herbie Hancock’s River: The Joni Letters).

Her own album “The Heart Speaks in Whispers” released in May 2016 debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard R&B charts.

Nocturne takes place at The Great Court in Blenheim Palace ( the birthplace of Sir Winston Churchill.)

The Palace will host a stage and seating for 7,000 guests — bringing back live music after a decade long hiatus.

Visitors are invited to make Nocturne an all-day affair with VIP dining in the famous State Rooms, a stroll through the vast grounds or a waterside picnic.

It is the first joint venture between Universal Music’s U-Live and the creators of the Love Supreme Jazz Festival, Neapolitan Music.

Tickets for the Saturday night start at £45 and are on sale right now.
