Rachael Bea

1940s singer Rachel Bea is a retro artist whose clear, authentic and romantic sound is making her a must to book for vintage festivals this year. Notable appearances at ‘Life on the Holme Front’ last year, tea dances and jives with the charming and energetic ‘Blitz Dancers’ have propelled Rachel Bea onto the vintage scene. Her renditions of White cliffs of Dover, All over the World, and We’ll meet again have brought audiences to their feet and moved them to tears whilst upbeat numbers such as ‘In the Mood’ and ‘Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy’ are guaranteed to get them jiving!
