The young musicians, performing as part of the annual Cambridge Jazz Festival, will be celebrating the popular and much-missed singer’s legacy in a seated show at the Junction’s J1.

Amy Winehouse’s unmistakable character, vocal dexterity and masterful songwriting made her a pop icon. Now, 10 years on from her tragic passing, her music still shines. This concert series reimagines her hits and revisits some of the early works she sang with the 24-piece National Youth Jazz Orchestra as a promising 16-year-old back in 2000.
