A SINGER-SONGWRITER – regarded as the finest ambassador of Brazilian music on this side of the Atlantic – is coming to the Pavilion Arts Centre as part of the Four Four Time Festival of Live Music.

Since she moved to the UK over a decade ago, Mônica Vasconcelos has established a reputation as one of the finest purveyors of samba and bossa nova.

Expect an evening that moves effortlessly from high-tempo samba to swinging bossa nova to late night balladry with ease, all intermingled with the technical keyboard and guitar wizardry of Monica’s band.

Tickets to see Mônica Vasconcelos & The HIH Quartet on Wednesday February 22, at 8pm, are priced at £14 and available on 0845 127 2190 or online at www.buxtonoperahouse.org.uk.
