JAZZ VO­CAL­IST Norma Win­stone Town­ley Hall, Drogheda, 8pm, ¤20/¤12, boyne­mu­sicfes­ti­val.com English singer Norma Win­stone (right) is one of the bona fide vo­cal su­per­stars of con­tem­po­rary jazz, a vastly ex­pe­ri­enced per­former who com­bines del­i­cacy and tech­ni­cal pre­ci­sion with ad­ven­tur­ous­ness and au­then­tic emo­tion. She flies in for a one-off con­cert at the Boyne Val­ley Fes­ti­val with two other no­ta­bles of the UK jazz scene, gui­tarist John Pari­celli and bassist Chris Lau­rence..
