At the age of 12 Evelyn Tubb was already a seasoned performer: singing, dancing, playing the trumpet, and always willing to entertain. Her assured performances are legendary: always stylish, full of pathos or humour, leaving the audience sometimes gasping at either her boldness or her delicacy. Her singing is wholly individual. Whilst obeying the best information on historical style she transcends any ‘early music’ definition of how the voice should be in this or that repertoire, and proceeds with an assured deftness to make the music her own, from within and heartfelt. Commitment is perhaps the best word to describe her impassioned ululation.
