Hazel’s touch of Glass

AWARD-winning singer/songwriter Hazel O’Connor is heading to Fleetwood’s Marine Hall in March.

The Coventry-born artist is still best known for her work as an actress, songwriter and singer in the acclaimed British film Breaking Glass in 1980.

The soundtrack gave Hazel her best known hits – Breaking Glass (the song), Eighth Day, Big Brother and classic Will You, still much admired for its haunting saxophone break.

Although it is this work which is best known by the public, the

55 year old has been steadily working on various projects over the past three decades.

For the Fleetwood gig, she is performing as Hazel O’Connor and the Bluja Project, performing with accomplished saxophonist Claire Hirst (Bellestars, Communards, David Bowie) and pianist/vocalist Sarah Fisher (Eurythmics, Sax in the City).

Torch song trio will perform a mix of Hazel’s best-known songs, their own take on ageless standards, and new material.

Hazel O’Connor and the Bluja Project perform at Fleetwood on Friday March 4, and all tickets cost £15.
