Jazz singer and pianist Liane Carroll received a BASCA Gold Badge Award on Monday 3rd October 2016 for her unique contribution to British Music.

In his personal tribute to her jazz pianist Malcolm Edmonstone said “When I play with Liane, it’s my true North, as an artist, and as a human. She is unmatched in her ability to connect; she has a harmonic concept to die for, she is a true improviser and one of the greatest interpreters of song – her musical aptitude is off the scale, but in a way that’s not important; the most remarkable thing about Liane is that all of the elation, the warmth, undying love and support of the performance continues effortlessly into the rest of life.”
